Yesterday Tony and I went into the city to check out the Pageant display. This year on November 10th, it will be the Christmas Pageants 80th Anniversary.
Back in 1933 it was known as the Children's Christmas Pageant. Then it became known as John Martin's Christmas Pageant for over 50 years. In 1996 the combined Credit Unions began their sponsorship of the Pageant and still do to this day. There were no Pageants during WWII (1941 - 1944).
Nimble was in the original Pageant of 1933
It was a great afternoon and we learnt things that we never knew before about the Pageant. We were sorry that Katie wasn't with us, she would have loved it I'm sure.
Today I went out for lunch with Dianne. We also started our Christmas shopping. This year I don't have many to buy for. Seeing the girls are so much older all they want is money so that they can go off and buy whatever they want. Easy for me!
