[dropcap]C[/dropcap]hris and Mary Carnes of Menifee definitely have an open door policy at Christmas time. These 2 lovely people open their home to the public every evening from December 2-30, from 6PM-9PM. (Mondays 5-6 PM for guests with restrictions). The outside of the home is fully decorated, but it’s the inside that is the crown jewel. The entire interior is plastered with Christmas spirit and decorations like you’ve never seen before. Internal sources tell us they start decorating in September. We were told that last year they estimated roughly 19,000 people came through the home. Of course there is a line to get in but while you wait there are Santa’s helpers passing out cookies. Once you enter the home you are greeted with a warm drink while you tour. Our favorite part was the surprise in the kitchen. Chris Carnes the owner awaits your arrival in the kitchen so you can try his homemade chili. It was fantastic! The event is geared to celebrate the holiday but also help the food drive for Menifee Community Cupboard, so please bring any canned goods you can spare. There is also free photos with Santa. Come on out and bring the whole family. Thank you Chris and Mary for the hospitality, we had a great time and thanks again Chris for the Chili recipe!
