We first visited the tiny town of Christmas back in 1982 with Dave and Donna Pearson. It was pathetic even back then — notice the rotund snowman behind us.
The gift shop and Santa in the above photo are still there. While my wife and daughter browsed, I took this shot.
Inexplicably, there was a large plywood Old Lady Who Lived in a Shoe behind the shop. When my daughter came out, I had her pose. I told you she liked kids.
The rest of the town consists of a campground, a casino and an abandoned gift shop with a giant Mrs. Claus who has lost her head when you look at her from the west.
