We spent hours along the Huntington Library, walking around and listening to a very refined guide who taught us about the building of the magnificent gardens and the unique library. Unmissable.

I would expect the first week of December to be very pleasant. Rain is a possibility, but the variety of gardens and the indoor art and library collections make it a great place any time of year.
