For Starters, Christmas Eve...we would decorate the tree and my parents would buy us new pajamas, me and my brothers would get NFL teams, my sisters got girly jammys; then off to bed, during the nite my brothers and i would sneak out of the bedroom to see if Santa left the toys, and i was the one they held by my ankles down the steps to see more into the livingroom if we made out good, Waking up my Father would line us up by age to come down the steps with the Brightest Light and a 8mm camara, recording as we came down. {it was blinding at 6am}. then of course it was great. Then going on the street with all your buddys and sharing what you got, Christmas was usually Hockey season so remember getting rooler skates with metal wheels and the black hockeypucks {hard as a diamond} getting hit with will show you a new kind of pain, my mother would make the goalies pads with the cushions from the couch and sow old wrangler jeans around them, and the ties to hold them on were made in a factory in Kenso..from my grandmother...more stories to come,.P.S. i was also the kid they held buy the ankles to go down the sewer to get our pimpleballs...LOL.. merry christmas cool.

How about sleding at the golf course; or way back when the street lamps were lit by the lamp lighter at dusk, (late 50's early 60's)or hanging out at the local drug store at M & Luzerne or M & Hunting Park. Trips to the Penn Fruit especially at Christmas when my Father and I would take my Radio Flyer wagon to get the Christmas tree. May procession at Holy Inn, Father Lynch!!
It goes on and on; could definately write a book.

Well....I would say Renels, Kiddie City as well but also "walking" trips to Frankford Ave. It used to be decorated with wreaths and lights back in the day. Christmas caroling, putting bells on your shoes, Christmas mass, or midnight mass at Holy Inn. Let me rattle my brain a bit and see what else I come up with!!!!

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Healthy New Year. My daughter Carolan is a communications/journalism major at LaSalle U. Tom Lineman has been kind enough to let her write some articles for the Juniata News. He would like her to get some ideas about Christmas in Juniata from years past. I thought our readers could share some great memories. I know I have many. Like most people I did all my shopping at Renel's. I also remember the huge bonfires at the Ressi with the old Christmas trees about a week after Christmas. Hope to hear some great memories from our readers. Thanks
