We may not have snow but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy delicious hot chocolate at one of the many wonderful celebrations. Here's Macaroni Kid Carlsbad's list of all the yuletide fun!

Go down to the beautiful La Costa Resort for a unique holiday experience. Celebrate the beginning of the holiday season with a tree lighting PLUS a visit from our skydiving Santa (weather permitting). My family attended this very unique event and the kids absolutely LOVED it. How often does Santa drive past you on a golf cart after jumping out of a plane?
