Santa And Me



A big part of Christmas for any kid is seeing Santa himself at the mall. My mall of choice in the 1970's was the Blue Ridge Mall in Kansas City. My mom would take me every year and I would breathlessly tell him everything I wanted in a very rapid pace. When the pictures were taken at the end, I would clam up. I must not have wanted my one on one audience with Santa interrupted. The picture at the top is from 1974 and this one is a year later.



Sadly, the Blue Ridge Mall is gone now but Santa is still going strong. Maybe he'll bring me some 70's DC comics or Star Wars figures this year.

Cool Santa pics! I remember one Santa had bad beer breath when I was a kid.
