1940’s and 1950’s
Dad and Mom played a big part in the Christmas party, gift giving and preparations. At one time, I also thought Dad played Santa. I still do not know who played Santa all those years.
To get ready for the big event at the school house the last day of school and as the Christmas vacation began, we pushed all our desks back to one side. The boys brought the folding chairs out of the basement. The girls dusted them off and we all put them in rows for the big night.
