Thanksgiving is done, it's back to work, and tomorrow we turn our calendars to December. Of course, we've been grousing for a few weeks already about shops who are hawking Christmas goods and festive holiday decorations have popped up all over town. Coffeehouses and retailers are brewing up seasonal flavors already, and some radio stations put Christmas and Hanukkah tunes in their rotation pretty much as soon as the carved pumpkins got tossed in the trash.

It's a little harder for Los Angeles to get that wintry look, considering we've been basking in balmy temps in the upper 70s. Sometimes we leave it to Hollywood magic to create our winter wonderland, sometimes we just shrug and break out the twinkle lights and garlands like they would in any other city. Here are a few photographs from our LAist Featured Photos pool on Flickr that prove autumn is waning and winter is truly on its way in.
