Christmas is here once again. Somehow, some way, Christmas endures and always manages to show up just as the icy winds of December are blowing.
Looking back through the old Christmas ads that appear this week on page 5A was an interesting job. The World War II ads geared toward the war effort were fascinating, but one ad in particular from an even earlier time caught my attention – the angel from the year 1899 that was welcoming in not only a new year, but a new century. I would love to step back in time and see this town during Christmas of 1899.
