DRIVES PEOPLE WILD
When that huge globe sets over the Pacific Ocean in Huntington Beach, people go crazy.
The opposite of the full moon syndrome, some are affected by the glow of the sun as it fades. Maybe it's primal...who knows?
But there's a whole lot of hugging going on most days when that beautiful ball of fire goes down as seen from the Huntington Beaches. It simply drives people wild!
