Santaland Christmas Story

Longest Performing Santa Claus as listed in the Guiness Book of World Records - used with permissionOn the 110th Anniversary of the New York Sun Editorial, Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, many of my holiday visitors to Santaland will remember when Christmas was more than electronics.

It was a holiday when people sat around a black and white television and watched Christmas shows from entertainers listened to music on the radio. Christmas is the only holiday where Santa Claus can get a glass of  milk and a plate of cookies at every child's house.  

It's a time when people watch on television the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and knew the Christmas holiday season officially began when I arrived at the end of the Parade, when the Christmas Tree was lit at Rockefeller Center, and the Rockettes were performing their stage show at Radio City Music Hall.

Those were the days of reading Christmas stories and Christmas Carols sung in the streets, a turkey cooking in the oven, egg nog on the table, cookies on a tray, a poinsettia in the window, a fire in the fireplace, and the Christmas Tree decorated on Christmas Eve.

Although those days are gone for the most part, Santaland will bring a small piece of that era back to life. There will be cooking tips and recipes for scores of holiday items.  Plant care tips for indoor holiday plants and  cut flowers  Christmas music of yesteryear playable on your computer or sang the old way...from a sheet of paper.   

I hope you enjoy your visit to Santaland! Stop by often!
