    No snow here, but lots of sparkle to come: Celebrate the season with a dash of desert style at the Palm Desert resort.

    SNOW IN CALIFORNIA... isn't something that's found in bags on the seasonal aisle at your local store. It truly exists, up at our higher elevations, and it is quite the cold-lovely sight to see. But not everyone needs to build a snowman, or throw a few hastily formed snowballs, to get into the swing of the sparkly season. Gaze upon our desert resorts, places that also flower with the festive spirit, even if daytime temperatures hover in the 70s and 80s and a person is far more likely to take a dip in a pool than shovel a front walkway. (At least when it comes to the frosty white stuff.)

    THE CLOSE-OF-THE-YEAR CELEBRATIONS... have a home at the pool-laden, grab-your-sunblock resorts, thanks to the special dinners and dishes at the resort restaurants, the lobby Christmas trees, and the quirky to-dos. The JW Marriott Desert Springs is embracing all that is effervescent and celebratory as Christmas and Hanukkah 2016 approach, so ponder a Palm Desert sojourn if you like your holiday merrymaking with a splash of warm sunshine. The hotel's 2016 merrymaking will include...

    GONDOLA SLEIGH SLIDES... as well as "a desert landscape-inspired massive spiced cookie abode. The Desert Winter Wonderland is on for December, but best check with the resort about times and such before you book, if you want to try out that elf-piloted gondola sleigh slide. The desert's halls are soon to be decked, and while snow isn't in the picture, chances to find classic cheer abound.
