While we can’t promise you a (highly overrated) white Christmas, we can provide the best craft fairs, Christmas events and ice-skating rinks in town (did we mention you can glide beneath palm trees?). Also on our list: holiday movies and songs to put you in the carol-humming, nog-guzzling, present-wrapping mood. Christmas in San Francisco just got awesome.
