With the vaccine rolled out and society on the mend, this holiday season will be a long-awaited return to festive form, especially in Paramount, CA. Like the rest of the country, holiday lights and decorations adorn the streets and homes in every neighborhood sparkle with holiday cheer.

With activities, shows and performances, shopping, and opportunities to serve, here are just a few of the festivities making Paramount, CA, the place to be for the holidays this year and every year:
Shows and Performances
Opportunities to Share
Last year, many of our favorite public holiday traditions were cancelled or restricted to allow for safety during the pandemic. Now, however, these favorites are returning in full force. Here are just two examples:
Paramount Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony: What better way to kick off the holiday season than with a good, old-fashioned Christmas tree lighting! This ceremony will include a special appearance by Santa Claus, plenty of cookies, hot chocolate, and a concert. Stop on by the Paramount Pond at Paramount Park between 6 and 8:30 p.m. on December 4 to get a jump start on the holiday spirit!
Photos with Santa: Santa is every child’s favorite celebrity! Give your kids a chance to meet their hero at the Paramount Photos with Santa community event!

What are the holidays without presents! As exciting as it is to receive presents of your own, is there really anything better than seeing a loved one’s face light up as they open a holiday gift you picked out for them? Whether you’re looking for unique seasonal decorations or a special gift to show someone how much you care, Paramount is the perfect place to be with its abundance of shopping centers.

Entering their store will give you full access to a massive collection of the greatest merchandise.
Opportunities to Share
There are ways to give that don’t involve presents. If you have the means or the time during this special time of year, consider giving to those less fortunate than you so they too can feel the joy of this winter season. Here are some great volunteer opportunities in Paramount, CA, this year:
Univision’s “The Spirit of Giving” Toy Drive: This toy drive really focuses on the spirit of giving, with their free toys, haircuts, health screenings, COVID-19 vaccinations, legal counseling, activities for kids, and more. The event is free and open to all, so if you or anyone you know is struggling this holiday season, invite them to the Univision Toy Drive and join the spirit of giving!
Heart of Christmas Food, Toy, and Book Donation Drive: The goal of this donation drive is to create a positive and joyful memory for youth during Christmas 2021. The drive will be donating food, toys, and books to those in need. The event will include musicians, storytime, and book and toy giveaways, so be sure to volunteer for a great, entertaining, feel-good experience where you have the opportunity to help those less fortunate than you are!
Christmas Together 2021: Christmas Together will be distributing 20,000 toys and creating an unforgettable experience for children to enjoy. This experience will include carnival rides and games, raffles, entertainment, a picture with Santa, COVID-19 testing and vaccinations, holiday meals, and a variety of food options—all for free! Quantity is limited, so register soon!
Did you know that the holiday season is when candle stores see their biggest boom in sales? Everyone loves a good pine-scented candle this time of year, but you must be careful when enjoying this seasonal scent. Did you know that up to 7,500 fires are started each year because of household candles? Consider using battery-powered candles to achieve the same ambiance without the added danger. Whatever you do, never leave your holiday candles unattended!
Christmas trees can be another fire hazard this time of year. If you’re one of the many Americans who can’t go without a real Christmas tree display in your apartment during the holiday season, then just make sure you keep it watered! Dry pine needles are extra flammable. Keep all open flames, such as candles, away from the branches, and make sure you turn all lights off when you’re not at home. Stay safe and enjoy the holidays!
With so much to do in Paramount, CA, you’re sure to make many lasting memories this holiday season. Take advantage of the local activities, shows and performances, shopping, and opportunities to serve, and be safe while celebrating. From all of us at Four Seasons Apartments in Paramount, CA, Happy Holidays!
