K.A.C. 2023 - T - 22 Days ...

     "I get it, Prancer, you hate that show-off Rudolph, but we're all supposed to be One Happy Family on these pages - Christmas Cheer, remember? OK, places, everyone!" 

     Sorry you had to see those behind-the-scenes tantrums, they're really the best of friends. Well (ahem), let's see what today's stocking has brought us, shall we?

'Santy Claws' debuts on November 3rd, 1954, in Tokyo and goes on to become an international sensation and one of the longest running film series in history.

THIS was what signaled the beginning of the Holiday Season for so many kids back then - three links below explain the phenomenon:

     Join us tomorrow for a look at 1955 and Really Poor Shopping Choices through the years!
