A Fabulous Forties Christmas

      The Fabulous Forties neighborhood is one of Sacramento's most iconic neighborhoods.  It is a stately mix of Tudor, Colonial Revival, Arts and Crafts and California Bungalow style homes.  The homes have some of the largest lots in East Sacramento and many feature cedar trees that are over 100 years old.  The Fabulous Forties was home to California's most famous governor and his wife, Ronald and Nancy Reagan.   

     It is THE perfect neighborhood for the holiday season.

    We voted these Candy Canes as the most creative decorations of the night. 

                                           Fabulous Forties Candy Canes

      The homeowner wrapped corrugated irrigation pipe with red and green lights to create 10-foot-high candy canes.  It was both creative and very effective.  There is a solid chance candy canes will make an appearance at the Henson household next Christmas.

      This is a magical time in the neighborhood and a fun excursion for family and friends. Visiting the Fabulous Forties for a little fun run with Runnin for Rhett has been a family tradition for us for several years.  We love spending a little time with Santa.  Who knew he could play the piano so well?

     If you are in Sacramento at Christmas time, We hope you get a chance to visit The Fabulous Forties. We also wish you a fabulous Christmas and New Year!

     Thank you Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker  and Carol Williams for this year’s Christmas Challenge!

BTW-When and if you find Santa, he will sound surprisingly like the Vince Guaraldi Trio as he plays this classic.  Go Snoopy, Go! ! !

It is fun, Rocky Dickerson.

Kathy Streib, The biggest challenge for those candy canes is finding a tree big enough to hang them, then find something that goes with 10' candy canes.

Good morning Raymond Henson, SRES, GRI - the neighborhood certainly brings back memories of the fifties for me.  I hope you show the candy canes in a picture of your house next year.

Love this, Ray! I live in a neighborhood that was built from around 2002 through 2010. The architecture is all turn of last century with 21st century interiors. Our neighborhood is one that people come from far and wide to see the Christmas lights each year.

Good Morning, Grant Schneider.  Since Mary Margaret loves the candy canes, I am about 95% we will have them next year and I will take pictures!

If the commute was a little shorter, Nina Hollander, we would definitely be driving through the neighborhood to enjoy the Christmas lights.

Michael Jacobs, I always appreciate finding your comments.  Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.  Below is a little slice of Elk Grove life that we discovered last night.

Joan Cox, we did the same thing last night here in Elk Grove and found some fabulous light displays.  This one was the best!  I hope you found some equally fabulous displays.
