For a subset of the general population, Christmas is not all "family, church, ham, gifts and Santa" day.
If you're looking for something to do in the San Francisco Bay Area on Christmas, here are two options:
Breakfast with the Characters
No, it's not Disneyland, but get your tickets now before they sell out. The Peninsula Jewish Community Center is hosting this breakfast, with Elmo, Mickey, Minnie,Bob Bob the Builder and Santa (just kidding about that last one). Included are crafts and carnival games, plus food!
Where: PJCC in Foster City
When: December 25 from 9:30-11:30
Tickets: in advance - get them here.
Contemporary Jewish Museum - Target Family Day
We went last year to this Deceber 25 free museum day. We saw lots of friends, did some crafts, shopped at the store, and checked out the exhibits. Plus caught a few children's entertainers doing their thing. Oh - Dori lost her retainer there (outside), so if you see it - let us know. The CJM has several exhibits running now, including one on Maurice Sendak, Jews on Vinyl and As it is Written: 304, 805.
Where: Contemporary Jewish Museum, Mission between 3rd & 4th in SF
When: December 25, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
