Projectors & Slide Shows
|1. An old fashioned Christmas Eve. The snow has been falling, and everything was covered with a beautiful white mantle. It is night time -- the moon is shining brightly. The windows of the houses are bright with the glare from the log-wood fires, and outside one of the largest houses in the village stand some well wrapped up figures singing, "God bless ye, merrie gentlemen, let nothing you dismay."
|2. Out of the forest comes an old gentleman in a massive dark red coat, with a long white beard, a large sack over his shoulder, and a big cap over his head. Whatever can he be doing this time of the night, and won't he catch cold in his old limbs? Not he! It is old Santa Claus, the friend of boys and girls everywhere. This is his special night of all the year, and he is going to try to make a happy Christmas for all the youngsters, far and near. Just watch him and see.

"'An endless reel of Christmas cheer, With love and kisses for you, my dear."
When the cardboard disc is turned to the left a Christmas Story appears on the screen:
"Now he's going to leave my dear, but if you're good he'll come next year."
