Safe Celebration


Last year, many of our favorite public holiday traditions were canceled 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 by the Paramount Pond at Paramount Park and get a jumpstart on the holiday season. At the moment, the exact time is undecided, but check the page for a specific date soon.

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! He will be making an appearance at the Paramount Community Center on December 4 and 5. Space is limited, and appointments are required, so book now!

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.

Paramount Town Center: The Paramount Town Center is the perfect place to grab some gifts for your friends and family. Full of stores, you can find gifts for children, adults, babies, and anyone else! Avoid the crowds by starting your shopping early.

Paramount Collectibles: If you are looking for a truly unique gift for that special someone, then Paramount Collectibles is the place to be! Paramount Collectibles specializes in selling only the very best products, and they are the largest Paramount store in that regard. 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 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:

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 2022: 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, holiday meals, and a variety of food options—all for free! Quantity is limited, so register soon!

Safe Celebration

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. 

We’d love to see your holiday fun! If you decorate for the holidays or try out one of the activities above, post a photo on social media, tag us, and use #TisTheSeasonAtAMC.
