Christmas Archives for November 29, 2013
This is the WUIS Christmas Archives for Friday... November 29th. I'm Rich Bradley. And in 1967... November 29th was the day before Thanksgiving... and in the Illinois State Register... we learn that plans were being finalized for the Taylorville Yule Parade.
... Christmas dinners and dances were being planned all over Springfield... at The State House Inn... the Washington Park Pavilion... and The Lake Club... among others.
... Buckley's... at Williams and Pasfield was opening its Yule Shop today... and featuring many DIY materials for Christmas. And... some Holiday gift ideas included:
Daytime dresses in checkers… big checkers or little checkers… at Bressmer's... for $10.
Permanent press corduroy jeans... in 3 colors... and “no-iron” pajamas could be found at K-Mart. The Kodak “Instagram” camera... complete with batteries... was selling for less than $40. Little Kiddles Dolls... Captain Action comic book figures and train sets... perfect for kids.
Members of the Sangamon County Medical Society Auxiliary were accepting gifts donations for the Wishing Tree Project until December 4th.
Land of Lakes Butter was pushing its product in a recipe for Sugarplums... that could be “whipped up” while visions dance in children's heads. And... "If cows could… they'd give Milnot"... so says an ad for the milk or cream substitute along with a recipe for Holiday Rush Fruit Cake. And... tickets for the Republican Women's Luncheon Club's annual Holy Hop were on sale.
That's the WUIS Christmas Archives... from this day in 1967. I'm Rich Bradley.
