We just love our Santa-Glo in this house. Vintage light-up Santa - here is the original box:
And the Santa who came inside:
In the photo below are my husband and his older brother circa 1952 , standing in front of the fireplace, with Santa at the center. I had no idea they used to have him there every year at Christmas. Before his parents passed away, I brought home a Santa-Glo I had found at an antique mall in Rancho Cordova. My husband said - "Oh - where did you find that?" - and told me the story (that they used to have one like it). When I bought him, it was the first time I had ever seen one of these. We still have the candle holders you see at either end of the mantle, also. Oh , and I even found their old Santa - broken, and missing his light. Plus, I have since purchased another on Ebay.
This year, I put him at the center of my mantle decorations - the same fireplace that you see in the picture above. But he is surrounded by a multitude of other Santas this time. I don't do simple.
Dear little Santa-Glo, right back where he belongs.
