Christmas Past in Angola
Angola Dons Yuletide Garb
Christmas trees, Bright Lights, Fine Windows
"Angola is being decorated in holiday attire this week, ready for the formal opening of the Christmas shopping season. On Thursday evening, December 8, at 7:00 o'clock the lights will be turned on and the windows unveiled. It will be seen that the well known reputation of the city for its beautiful holiday decorations has been fully maintained. New lighting equipment was supplied this year, and the arrangement for lighting the monument with flood lights has been turned to advantage to enhance the beauty of the public square. Four fine trees have been placed on the mound in the square with four strands of colored lights. Street lighting posts have been turned into Christmas trees with various colored lights. Thursday evening at 7:00 o'clock, the Legion band will come out and lead the procession of happy people who will officially welcome in the Christmas season. All the lights will be turned on, Santa Claus, we are told, will be here, and the Christmas windows will be lighted, and the Old Man Gloom will be routed. The Psi Iota Xi Sorority and the High School Girls A Capella Choir will sing.
For the entertainment of the children during the Christmas season, the merchants have arranged for three free matinees on Saturday afternoon, December 10, 17, and 24 at the Brokaw Theater. Parents are invited to leave their children there while doing their Christmas shopping."
