A look at some of the most spectacularly decorated holiday homes in San Francisco and on the Peninsula

Laurent and Patricia

39 Masonic Ave., San Francisco

Their house has been described as a “very cute” one-story Victorian home. “It looks like a gingerbread house, people really like it,” Laurent said. The style of the house is played up during the holidays, and Laurent has decorated it for the past 20 years. With multi-colored lights and a Santa Claus in the front-yard garden, the home Laurent shares with his girlfriend, Patricia, has a rather unique yultide pairing — Betty Boop.

“She is next to Santa, they are together,” Laurent said with a laugh.
