For this week’s Christmas-themed Weekend Wind-Down, we’re flashing back all the way to December 2007. These photos taken during a parade at DISNEYLAND, have been languishing in my Flickr photostream since before the existence of this blog…what better time to share these images than now?
At the time, my sister, Cynthia, was working for the Disney corporation as a tax specialist. She was a week away from starting a new job with another company and told us that if we wanted to go to Disneyland for FREE, that she could hook us up. So, on a whim, we took a whirlwind weekend trip from to California. We went straight from the airport to Disneyland and got there just in time to catch their Christmas parade. Freakish storm clouds loomed overhead, making the whole scene even more surreal…but luckily, the rain never came…
