Seasons in the Santa Cruz Valley

Often people from the north will ask "How can you live where there are no seasons?"
My response is always "What do you mean, we can have 4 in one day. You have 4, two of which you complain about". Yes, it is not unusual for us to be in the 30's in the morning and the 70's in the afternoon. When I was around 10 years old my family drove from Minnesota to Miami over the Christmas Holidays. I could not understand Christmas without snow.

For those from the north we do:
Decorate our palm trees
Put Santa Hats on our cactus
Put bows on our pyrocantha
