Cleveland Christmas Memories

About This Activity

Remember what Christmas felt like as a kid? Jingeling (the keeper of Santa's keys) on TV or in person at Halle's.  Gazing at the giant Sterling-Lindner tree.  Stopping at Higbee's downstairs Frosty Bar for sweet relief after the long line to see Santa.  Ice skating on Public Square.  A dazzling and elegant Cleveland Orchestra concert at Severance Hall.  Mouthwatering treats from Hough Bakery and traditional ethnic flavors from the local market.  The brilliant holiday lighting display at GF's Nela Park....Join in as dozens of Northeast Ohioans share their personal stories of Christmas past; includes recollections of people who made Christmas happen, too: former Santas, retail window dressers, entertainers, and of course parents. 

Written by Gail Bellamy, the book will be available at the Lodge for purchase throughout December: $17.95 each or (2) for $30.  A portion of proceeds will benefit the Lifestyle Programs.  Makes a beautiful Christmas Gift - plus have it personalized by the author on December 20th.
