WATCH CHARLES ON THE QUEEN LATIFAH SHOW – CHRISTMAS
Charles cooks up Christmas in the kitchen with Queen Latifah !!!
Two lovely young ladies clad in sleeveless blouses and capri-clam digger-pedal pusher-toreador pants rest on giant cement mushrooms in front of the "Welcome House," of Southern California’s most bizarre theme park. The first of three Santa's Villages -- the others were in Santa Cruz and Dundee, Illinois -- it opened just months before Disneyland in 1955.
Have you ever spent Christmas in Christmas? Christmas, Michigan. How about Easter in Easter, TX? Have you ever been to Santa Claus? Santa Claus, Indiana or Santa Claus, Georgia? Were you ever served Christmas dinner at this week's slide: Christmas Tree Inn, Santa Claus, Arizona, 1951.
This is not a slide, it’s a snapshot. But it’s the only picture I have of my family at Christmas. We’re at my Aunt Mattie and Uncle Art’s house. That fake white flocked tree with gold ornaments reappeared every season for more than two decades. I never realized how well it went with the curtains and hanging lamp in the corner.
