December 15, 2020 - Tuesday - Today we got into the holiday spirit by visiting the Christmas on Euclid Avenue exhibit in the city of Ontario, CA.  The nativity scenes displayed on the historic Euclid Avenue median have been a long-standing Christmas tradition since their debut in 1958.  There are twelve crèche scenes depicting the Nativity and life of Jesus.  The artist was Rudolph Vargas, a native of Mexico.  He specialized in religious scenes but also worked for major movie studios to create statues for movie sets.  He sculpted the carousel in Mary Poppins and worked with Walt Disney and Disney Imagineering to create the children in It’s a Small World ride and the pirates in the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland.

The weather was beautiful and the artwork is superb, considering it's over 60 years old.  Today's lunch was Subway sandwiches back in Redlands.
