The Jolly Man in the Red Suit

Hello All- Merry Christmas wishes for you all. I hope the jolly man in the bright red suit with fur trim came dashing on his sled and visited you. And he left exactly what you wanted....

From the finale of the 1959 Christmas in Many Lands Parade. Evidently at that time period, Santa had to be protected by one of Disneyland's finest security guards!

From the end of the Christmas parade in the early 1960s. I love the balloons coming down.

The parade float featuring Santa Claus surrounded by bell players and lots and lots of stuffed animals. This one is from the end of the 1976 Christmas Parade.
