Dancing X-Mas Trees, Golden Girls in Drag, Jewish Christmas Comedy Show – That’s San Francisco!


If watching dancing Christmas trees in the irreverent Beach Blanket Babylon (in photo) isn’t your idea of fun, stick around San Francisco, where you can also see Blanche Devereaux and Dorothy Zbornack in Golden Girls Christmas episodes performed in drag. Or how about a comedy-filled, all star cast with the likes of popular Elayne Boosler performing a Jewish Christmas show in a Chinese restaurant? It’s all part of San Francisco’s unique and flavorful holiday season served up strangely different than anywhere on earth!

Sure, you can see the nutty Nutcracker ballet this year. There are dozens throughout California, include San Francisco Ballet version. You can also cheer on the lighting of yet another holiday tree in San Francisco where you’ll find at least half a dozen. There’s so much going on this holiday season in San Francisco that they almost could write a book about it.

One of the highlights this holiday in San Francisco is the dazzling Cirque de Soleil performing TOTEM, which traces the fascinating journey of the human species from its original amphibian state to its ultimate desire to fly.

San Francisco offers traditional holiday concerts, shows and events to fill your calendar, but for those who are ready for some off-beat comedy, book one of those cheap Jet Blue flights or hop in a car and head for the City by the Bay for outrageous to traditional holiday entertainment like no other place offers.
