22 16x16 Memory from an old-fashioned Department Store Christmas

The great thing about growing up in the 1960's - Department stores really went all-out on their Christmas displays, not only in store windows, but inside, too.

Here's a video of an in-store puppet show that was performed a few times a day at Hess's department store in Allentown, PA. "Pip, the Mouse Before Christmas", was created by George Creegan of Steubenville, Ohio in 1962. He also had a daily children's TV show, "Creegan & Crow" that played locally in Steubenville.

This kind of stuff brings back great memories for me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I59an...layer_embedded
