Sleepy Hollow was not the only holiday tradition in Torrance. From the start, the city saw holiday celebrations as a way to bring people together. Explore some of the old traditions that were popular from the roaring 20s, through the Great Depression to the boom of the post war years.

We will learn about Santa’s Village on El Prado, the decorating of Old Torrance shops for the season and the community Christmas tree.

Reference Librarian, local historian and former THS Board member Michael George, combs the old records to see how folks celebrated the season “back in the day.”
