Photos: All Souls Christmas Home Tour in Point Loma is the oldest one, west of the Mississippi

Gleaning creative ways to decorate for the holidays is a good reason to take the home tour.

A tradition and a beacon of the season to many, All Souls Episcopal Church’s 67th annual Point Loma Christmas Home Tour took place 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018 with 600 visitors to the marketplace, food trucks, tea social and five gorgeous houses decorated for the holidays and open for viewing. The event raised about $30,000 for the church’s extended ministries, which include feeding those homeless in San Diego, buying medicine and care for families and orphans at a hospital in Kenya, and providing clothing and shelter for new arrivals to the Episcopal Refugee Network. All Souls is at 1475 Catalina Blvd. (619) 223-6394.
