Hi! I remember very well the decorated houses in the Sunset/Parkside areas! We would go for rides at night just to see them. One of the areas was 17th. and 18th. Ave. between Vicente/Wawona. We used to look forward every year for the "rides" that would take us there to see them. I also remember in the 7th. & 8th. grade (St. Cecilia's) going around to those same houses and singing Christmas Carols. Having gone to Mercy High School in the beginning years I also remember the roof rides on top of the Emporium in Stonestown. We used to go over after school and have a ball! Such fond memories...those were the days, my friend!
