Christmas in Malibu

Books, Santa & Shopping

By: Gracee Arthur

Tuesday I ventured into Santa Monica where I had an appointment in the Edgemar complex. The architectural center was designed by the renowned architect Frank Ghery.  Entering the courtyard, my eyes were captured by a fabulous sculpture of a Christmas tree assembled with shopping carts! After the chaos of Black Friday, the tree is not only  a creative masterpiece but a statement of what has become of Christmas.

However, if you are looking for a more peaceful way to shop and enjoy seasonal events, while supporting local businesses, stop by the Malibu Country Mart. Diesel Bookstore is featuring a book signing with Malibu author Ben Marcus whose latest book is “Images of America: Malibu.” The event will be held on Saturday, December 3rd from 1-to 3 PM at Diesel’s new location at 23410 Civic Center Way Suite A-3.

Malibu Country Mart also welcomes Santa and his Reindeer back to Malibu this holiday season. Here is the schedule of weekend holiday events at the Mart:
