January 2018 Lifestyle Letter

“Brew me a cup for a winter’s night.

For the wind howls loud and the furies fight;

Spice it with love and stir it with care,

And I’ll toast our bright eyes,

my sweetheart fair.

-  Minna Thomas Antrim

Welcome January to our Spanish Village by the Sea. What a gift it is to live here, be close to the ocean and the good people of San Clemente. The first of the year seems to come so fast, and before we know it, the next year is upon us. We hope everyone had a fantastic holiday season, filled with delicious food, family, friends and good vibrations. The Lifestyle Magazine would like to say thank you to everyone who sponsored, contributed or enjoyed reading about this great town through our pages this past year.

With January comes some known and some not so well know holidays; be sure to celebrate them if at all possible. Besides the 1st being New Years Day, it’s also National Hangover Day, be sure not to miss it. The 4th is National Spaghetti Day; who doesn’t love a good plate of pasta? Dress Up Your Pet Day is celebrated on the 14th; how fun is that! Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday is celebrated on the third Monday, the 15th. One of my personal favorites is celebrated on the 20th, National Cheese Lover Day. And who wouldn’t want to celebrate National Pie Day held on the 23rd? Also worth mentioning is Inspire Your Heart with Art Day, celebrated on the 31st.

Have an awesome year, San Clemente!
