Christmas Spirit Prevails in Caddo’s Streets and Homes
With the coming of the Yuletide season of 1936 comes a Christmas spirit to Caddo that has never before been equaled. Never in the past has Caddo been so gaily and fittingly arrayed as she now is.
A huge Christmas tree in the center of the street and colored lights across the main street are the features of the downtown decorations that are annually put up by the Lions Club.
Adding no little to the big attraction are the store windows that send out a light of Christmas suggestions up one side and down the other. Restaurants give out a glad, warm greeting, making one want to go in and eat. Ready-to-wear articles offer gift suggestions in a number of windows, all the more enhancing for the decorations and lighting effect. Toys for the children and novel suggestions of any type for any one are displayed in some windows. Again, a fireplace, burning so brightly, and a few chairs attract the attention of the children in one window. Furniture as displayed, reminds one that gifts for the house are good. Even in the barber shops the Christmas spirit can be kept up for they, too, have been decorated.
The meat market with a small tree glittering there in the window, adds to the other decorations of the town; and from an upstairs window a lighted tree shines out into the night.
If you have not seen the town with all its seasonal coloring, take time out and look at it closely. Then go to the residential section and see the beautifully lighted trees and wreath in the windows of the homes and you will again be reminded that Caddo is a fine place in which to live and call HOME.
