December 2016 is here and that means more than anything else that it is holiday season! One of the great things about living in such a small, tight knit community like Malibu is that we have so many holiday events that allow for close and meaningful interactions with our community members. We didn't want our audience to miss out on any of these so we wanted to share the holiday events coming up in the next few weeks.
