Christmas Camp adventure

Monday, January 27, 2020

Christmas Camp started a the Santa Bar and 1,000 Santa’s and 10,000 of flashing lights








Which way to go so much to see we spent 3 hours looking
The welcome sign tells you there is so much see and enjoy that you won’t see it all in one visit .
Remember just enjoy the visit and come back again to explore again
We only had one day so enjoyed the three hour visit . We both decided they were correct . Like Tom commented its old fashioned Christmas store windows on steroid’s









We collected Merry Badges along the way. After visiting each of the seven areas we earned a stamp in our camp guidebook.

We were reminded the majority of our Christmas traditions today originated in Roman.
Tom getting his first Merry badge . I learned that the rich would trade places with the poor









Renaissance era you could sit around the campfire and tell Ghost stories roast marshmallows
Tom checking out the many foods they enjoyed at their parties as well









Baroque era a fancy living room and a lady out for a ride around the city












German Christmas shoes filled with goodies and a tree in Germany they would hide a pickle on the tree the person who found got an extra gift .






A visit to Santa’s cabin and barn




How about Santa’s clock




It runs backwards Because otherwise he would not get everything done .
Some days it might be nice if our clocks ran backwards




In Japan fried chicken has become a tradition for Christmas dinner thanks to a marketing campaign in
1974 called Kwrisvmasu ni wa Kentakki Kentucky for Christmas.


Take a peek into a Victorian living room enjoy the tree,postcard to friend .
They even had post cards and pens. You need to take them home to mail i bought a couple home for my scrap book .






In the 1950’s Pink was a popular in home this is from the camp book mine did not turn out



It was fun to see this sitting on a table and how kids reacted




I have a green in the basement ! the telephone


















Hope you enjoyed to a trip to Christmas
time to head home and have a snack and get ready for our evening Adventure

    I always wanted a princess phone!

    I've got my mother-in-law's aluminum tree with the original turquoise ornaments and its spinning light wheel. The poor old thing sheds more than a live tree at the end of the season.

    How wonderful! We had one like that last one -- silver with a revolving color disc -- when I was a kid.
