A Season Full of Traditions

Published On:

Los Altos Festival of Lights ParadeAs the weather gets colder and the nights grow longer, there are visual reminders everywhere that a season full of traditions is beginning. What is common to most is the addition of lights.

They begin to appear as early as Halloween, when we place Jack-o’-Lanterns on our doorsteps to welcome those ghosts and goblins that are trick or treating. From then the lights begin to appear throughout our neighborhoods as people start to add lights to their homes, which glow with faith and light. This can even create spectacular displays on entire blocks.

Autumn In Los Altos

Autumn in Los Altos, California

The crunching of fiery red, and rich, golden leaves beneath my feet as I walked to school as a kid, made autumn one of my favorite times of the year. The intense and dramatic effect of the trees turning color, was a joy to see, but the most exciting thing was searching for that perfect leaf, and then trying to preserve its beauty by pressing it in a book.

A Little Los Altos History

Rusacks Hotel ScotlandThe other day while watching the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St. Andrews and I noticed, in the background, in the excitement and tension of the golfers finishing on the 18th hole, the Rusacks Hotel. In that moment I was taken there, in the center of things, standing in a well-appointed room overlooking the Old Course.

What I loved about this was the rootedness it gave me, knowing that I could be part of history, not only in the making, but also of everything that had come before me in that very spot.

Across from the Civic Center Orchard, at One Main Street, Enchanté Boutique Hotel has the same appeal. The hotel anchors what is commonly referred to as the Los Altos downtown triangle; set squarely in a location that is rich with history.
