3 Weird Facts You Probably Don't Know About Boxing Day December 26 by Michelle Carr Crowe, Silicon Valley, Calif. guide and real estate agent selling San Jose, Calif. homes I love Christmas, and even though I didn’t grow up with Boxing Day as a family tradition, I enjoy celebrating it every December 26, too. If, like me, you've never heard of it, Boxing Day is a British holiday. (The first I learned of it was on a calendar in my Christmas stocking a few decades ago). Boxing Day was established as a way for the wealthy to bless those less fortunate on a regular basis. Scholars believe Boxing Day started in the Middle Ages. One theory is that servants were required to work on Christmas Day but took the following day off-and how nice to have your boss come to serve you and give you somethi...

Exquisite, Exclusive Monte Sereno Monte Sereno, California, is one of the most exclusive residential neighborhoods in all of Santa Clara County, and perhaps California. With only about 4,000 residents and virtually no commercial or retail (besides La Hacienda Inn and Restaurant), Monte Sereno is where many of Silicon Valley's most discriminating millionaires call home. Characterized by majestic redwoods, estate-sized lots and custom-built homes, Monte Sereno is an ideal place to call home. Located within almost an exact 1-square-mile, Monte Sereno is embraced by Los Gatos, Saratoga and Campbell. Boundaries are along Saratoga-Los Gatos Road (highway 9), Quito Road, Bicknell/Karl/Eaton and Winchester Blvd. Education is a priority for residents, as evidenced by the award-winning schools, i...

Monte Sereno is a small city next to Los Gatos and Saratoga, Ca, a nice part of Silicon Valley against the coastal foothills. It's completely residential except for the city office and the post office. With just 4000 residents, it is sometimes overlooked or treated like a suburb of Los Gatos, with which it shares a zip code and some services.Monte Sereno real estate is a little different then Los Gatos real estate, though. It's a bit more expensive and upscale, and is often considered more desireable. Right now in Silicon Valley, it's the lone holdout with prices higher than they were a year ago!  On my Live in Los Gatos blog, I had a look at Monte Sereno's housing market now as contrasted with Los Gatos now and also with its own market 2 years ago.  To learn more about the market for h...
