DID YOU KNOW? California Christmas fun facts

Disneyland Christmas
Disneyland, decked out for the holidays.

• Every holiday season Disneyland is decked out with more than 7,000 feet of ribbon, 2,015 feet of garland, and 10,395 Christmas lights. And that's just on Main Street.

• From 6pm to 9pm each evening through the season you can count on snow to fall every hour on the hour at Universal CityWalk in Hollywood. Also don't miss (you really won't be able to) the giant Christmas tree decorated with 200,000 choreographed lights.

The US has an official Christmas tree located in King's Canyon National Park in California. It's a 300-foot high giant sequoia called the "General Grant Tree" and was named the official Christmas tree in 1925.
