Wreaths on doors, hot chocolate in mugs, and most importantly lights on houses. 

All these things bring us closer to the most festive time of year. A street in particular takes decoration to a whole new level and embodies aspects of the holiday spirit each year: Candy Cane Lane.

With several locations, we are lucky enough to have one in Sleepy Hollows, Torrance. Only a couple of miles north, the Candy Cane Lane in El Segundo has gained immense popularity, especially with Amazon Prime Video premiering a movie to show off the street’s spirit. 

For many, Candy Cane Lane is not a trend, it is a tradition. This is especially true for homeowners where their festive décor is mandatory.

Eight-year resident Eric said, “Living on this street brings a certain appreciation for the holiday spirit. The time and dedication really pay off when you get to see people enjoy the lights and festivities. Every year I try to improve my decorations and try to be more creative with them. I always hang a giant sleigh with Santa in my trees which is a huge hit with the kids.” 

The street officially opened on Wednesday, November 29 and continues to spread holiday spirit through the winter break.
