And Santa Claus is coming 'round..."
These windows on upper Forest Avenue are quite colorful and seem to be welcoming the holiday season. Besides putting our Christmas lights up in the windows in early December, Mom allowed us to coat the bottom of the windows with aerosol cans of 'fake frost'. I also recall one season where we used some sort of colored plastic paper (oxymoron?) to create a stain glass effect on them. They weren't as elaborate as these, but I bet we had as much fun. Thanks to ideas she gathered from the old Captain Kangaroo show, Mom had what seemed an endless 'treasure house' of art supplies. Good thing, because she had to entice and entertain us for hours each December.
