Santa Claus is Coming to Town – V

Sometimes the connection with Santa, Christmas or Fairy Tales was a trifle vague but as long as it was colourful it didn’t really matter.
Of course many of the floats were recycled with a chance of colour, an alteration of structure. This year’s Animal Fair could be next year’s Circus Float – but only the most precocious of children – who are you smirking at? – would have noticed.
Santa was always preceded by a float to remind us – if the blowing snow and below zero temperatures weren’t enough as you sat on the curbside – that he came from the North Pole. I recall Teresa Michaelski and I having a heated discussion as to whither the Ice Queen’s palace should be coloured blue or pink. What color was ice in your world?

  1. I've never been to the “big” parade – thanks for the recaps! Do you actually remember all of this stuff?
    I do remember going to see the window displays downtown.
