Holiday spirit soars at Ronald McDonald House


December got off to a colorful start at Ronald McDonald House at Stanford Thursday with a "Light the House" celebration that included live music, face-painting, balloons and the illumination of thousands of lights.

Palo Alto Mayor Sid Espinosa switched on the lights at the event, which started at 4 p.m. For more information about Ronald McDonald House, visit
