Seattle Photo Op: Santa 1944

Children with Santa at City Light Christmas party, 1944

Taking the kids to see Santa is a long standing tradition, although these kids at the 1944 Seattle City Light party look a lot different from the kids in the mall.  Still, that jolly old fat guy has a photogenic appeal, attracting kids of all ages.  What will people be thinking in 65 years when they look back at our holiday photos of today?

Hiss! Boo! ‘Tis the Season for the Pantomimes!

Hiss! Boo! ‘Tis the Season for the Pantomimes!

Instead of getting a real gift, you get a gift...
