This is the thirteenth Christmas that I've been able to share with our friends and colleagues here on AnimationNation and I am very grateful for the opportunity for another Holiday Season with the great folks that make up our community.
As I've done on Christmas Eve for the past several years, good fortune had me participating in the decoration of St. Charles Barromeo Church on Lankershim Blvd. and Moorpark Rd. in North Hollywood, California. The great benefactor of this beautiful house of worship was none other than Bob Hope and his wife, Delores Hope. They funded the building of the church. It was completed in 1959. On the drive back to Burbank, I passed by Bob Hope's house. He didn't live far from St. Charles Church. I pulled over and got a shot of the nativity scene the estate sets up at one of the gates to the property. Bob and Delores Hope did this every year, and the tradition continues even though they've both passed on. Here's how it looked this Christmas Eve.
There's more to see, including the interior of St. Charles all spruced up for the Holiday and special videos to enjoy at the AN Christmas celebration on the AN Forums.
To people everywhere, we wish you Peace, Prosperity, Creativity and all good things in life. Thank you for following AnimationNation.
