What made Christmas special to a Cleveland kid? Relive some of your fondest memories: A visit to Mr. Jingeling at Halle’s, long lines to see Santa at Higbee’s, a concert at Severance Hall, and more.

What made Christmas extra-special to a Cleveland kid? Come relive some of your fondest moments as Gail Ghetia Bellamy presents stories and photos from her book Cleveland Christmas Memories.

Take a trip down memory lane as you recall Mr. Jingeling (the keeper of Santa’s keys) on TV or in person at Halle’s. Gazing at the giant Sterling-Lindner tree. Stopping at Higbee’s downstairs Frosty Bar for sweet relief after the long line to see Santa. Ice skating on Public Square. A dazzling and elegant Cleveland Orchestra concert at Severance Hall. Mouthwatering treats from Hough Bakery and traditional ethnic flavors from the local market. The brilliant holiday lighting display at GE’s Nela Park . . .

A book signing will follow the presentation.  Sponsored by the Friends of the Bay Village Branch.
