For this to be done, the boundaries were defined. This bill was unanimously supported by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and the LA City Council. Assembly Bill 588 was approved by the Governor on August 28, 2006, and now the district of Hollywood has official borders.

Vechii saxoni au sarbatorit venirea primaverii aducand omagii zeitei primaverii, Eastre. Cand in secolul al II-lea misionarii crestini au ajuns in mijlocul triburilor nordice cu serbarile lor pagane, au incercat sa ii converteasca la crestinism.
