I first became aware of the Tour de France in the late 80’s; John Tesh was doing the commentary and composed jazzy rock fusion music that matched the excitement of the race. I woke early every morning to watch the latest leg and imagined what it might be like to be on the course there in France. The bikes whirring by, cyclists wheel to wheel, dangerously close, channeling their power and determination in an attempt to move to the head of the pack, the crowd of spectators cheering their favorites on.
I can’t use the word tradition without hearing the fiddle from Fiddler on the Roof and Tevye sing, “Tradition…Tradition!”
Los Altos has some wonderful traditions that bring folks to town to enjoy the community and reunite with friends and neighbors. A long-standing tradition is the Annual Easter Egg Hunt, in it’s 55th year, sponsored by the Los Altos Village Association. With the help of the merchants, over 4,000 filled plastic eggs are conspicuously placed in and around downtown for the children to find on this day, games and crafts follow and then take their picture with the Easter Bunny.
As 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.
