As taken from the pages of The Aegis dated Thursday, Dec. 26, 1963: Santa arrived in Edgewood Meadows at the model home riding on an Abingdon Fire Company truck. The developers of the subdivision, Ward and Bosely, were the hosts of the party for the residents. The most impressive thing about the arrival of Santa was his size. Santa was six feet nine inches tall and weighed 300 pounds. The Bel Air Moose Club sponsored a Christmas party for some underprivileged families.

FOR MORE than 40 years, the folks at the Arundel Improvement Association have had a special arrangement with the North Pole. If they could arrange for enough elves to assist, Santa Claus would make a private visit to the homes of children in the community to hear their Christmas wishes.When I was growing up in the community, this was the event of the year. Every year, my sister and brother and I would listen for the sounds of holiday music that would mean he was in the neighborhood.With a cheery "ho, ho, ho," he would bound up the steps, ask us and our parents whether we had been good, listen to our wishes, and hand each of us a stocking and an orange.

It's time again for that much-maligned tradition, the company Christmas party. It's true that these oh-so-festive occasions are fraught with peril, but they can present a real opportunity, too, when we know how to approach them.When they're perilous, it's usually due to mixing business, pleasure and large quantities of alcohol, which makes them a likely occasion for flirtations to begin, romances to burst into flame, rumors to be conceived, rude jokes to be told, and both old and new hostilities and grievances to be aired.

HADDONFIELD, N.J. - This time of the year, back in my hometown, the Blessed Virgin Mary shrine at old St. Pat's Church would be decked out in red, green and blue lights that sparkled all night through. My Aunt Mary informed me that this was to remind us that Mary was "lying in" and waiting for the baby Jesus to arrive. Not knowing what "lying in" meant, I translated this to "goofing off," which is what I usually did in school before Christmas came. The week before Christmas, my dad's crowd, the Holy Name Society, was busy setting up for the Parish Christmas Grab Bag Party.

On Sept. 27, there was ceremony held at the headquarters of the 135th Airlift Group of the Maryland Air National Guard. It was a very important ceremony to the members of the unit, yet there was media mention whatsoever. Wonder why? Ask our governor, lieutenant governor and the people our votes sent to Washington. Maybe they can explain. The ceremony mentioned was the deactivation of the group. They are no longer needed. They were going to be replaced by the thousands of transfers from other bases to our Aberdeen Proving Ground.

The Associated Press has dispatched its annual story on the current cost of giving the gifts enumerated in "The Twelve Days of Christmas. " It is, you well know, among the holiday cliches to be deplored . The economic information, meretricious as it is, is generated each year by PNC Wealth Management, which thus gets mentioned prominently. But even more than a free ad for a bank, the story is in its own category a kind of Platonic ideal in American journalism: a light holiday feature that is guaranteed to arrive and which requires absolutely no imagination or initiative.

Even with all the warning, I just can't see to get up to speed with the holidays. Way back around Halloween when the first hints of Christmas decorations were sprouting like too-early crocuses poking through a February snow, I looked around and figured there was plenty of time. My kids still had uneaten candy from trick or treating. Thanksgiving, which I swear someone moved so it fell the week after Halloween this year, was fast upon me and there was a lot of cooking and cleaning to do. By now Christmas hype was, as it always is at Thanksgiving, turned up to full volume.
