With just a few days left until Christmas, more and more lights are popping up around the Central Coast.
While scoping out lights Thursday night, KSBY ran into some Camarillo residents who hosted evacuated friends from Ventura and the Thomas Fire.
They all came up to visit family in Shell Beach and decided on an after-dinner walk to the "Gingerbread Beach House" on Seaview Avenue in Shell Beach.
Pam Loguercio talked about what she enjoys. "The lights and being together and enjoying our full tummies and grateful that we have our family, friends and food."
It's nice to see the smoke clear and give way to holiday cheer.
