20 Ways to Enjoy the Holiday Season In and Around Irvine

The holidays are just around the corner! There’s no right or wrong way to spend your holiday season—some people love going all out, I’m talking spending the entire month drunk on hot cocoa and candy canes, Bing Crosby’s White Christmas on heavy rotation and Christmas decorations galore. Others like to spend this time of year relaxing, unwinding and reflecting. Whatever your plans are, I hope you find some inspiration from this list of holiday activities to enjoy in and around Irvine. Happy Holidays!
