EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (CIRCA) — A popular Southern California tradition is back for the holidays. Most of December, the 1200 block of East Acacia Avenue in El Segundo turns into "Candy Cane Lane."
The residents of Candy Cane Lane decorate their houses from top to bottom in Christmas lights. The cul-de-sac consists of 26 homes and is closed off to cars nightly.
In the past, one house became the North Pole airport and another became Santa's theater, showing Christmas movies on the front lawn.
People from all over the city come and walk the famous lane to view the different houses. Children can also stand in line to meet Santa Claus and have their picture taken.
