December 2nd

On the Second day of December, we are traveling to San Fransisco, and are able to explore the Great Dickens Christmas Fair. How would you feel if London all of a sudden moved to a different continent? Having been to London a lot this year I am really intrigued to see what the London replica would be like. I find it fascinating to see how the different Traditions are all becoming a melting pot of a lot of traditions from many different countries.

Have you heard of the Great Dickens Christmas Fair in San Fransico?

Our Guide for the day is Amber Alexander, and I am really excited she wanted to be a part of this event.

Let’s meet Amber:

I’m Amber Alexander, the owner of Amber’s Compass. I’ve climbed the Great Wall of China while a stranger who spoke no English held onto my arm for comfort. As my first real solo trip, I explored the waterfalls at Yosemite. As a soldier, I was deployed to a combat zone in Kuwait. I’ve toured through tunnels near the South Korean DMZ and because of my love of travel and culture I had a travel blog. I believe that traveling should be an adventure that you remember for a lifetime. Your journey is a personal transformation and I’m here to provide tips, recommendations, and reviews. For the travelers who seek culture, Amber’s Compass is your destination: https://amberscompass.com/

What makes Christmas special to Amber?

To me, Christmas is special because it brings together family, food, and tradition. It’s not just a single day, it’s a season of happy memories.

Located in San Francisco, the Great Dickens Christmas Fair is an indoor holiday festival based on Charles Dickens’ Victorian London. Its winding halls are filled with characters from his books, unique shops, and delicious British food. It is the perfect event for the holidays. Filled with attendees in Victorian-themed clothing, you’ll see gentlemen in top hands or kilts and women in elaborate corseted dresses. But being in costume is completely optional, you will be welcomed with whatever you wear. Throughout this replica of London, you’ll be able to shop in dozens of little stores. It has everything from hand-made Christmas decorations, unique children’s toys, to beautiful jewelry and costumes. There is even a wand shop for the Harry Potter lovers. There is so much to see and do, I didn’t have time for it all. I listened to battle plans from a commander, had a bout of “Scarlet Fever”, and saw Ebenezer Scrooge with one of his Christmas Ghosts. I’ve enjoyed the fair so much that I’ve returned to the event several years in a row. The fair is kid friendly as well as wheelchair accessible.
