We sure love Christmas here at RetroFestive, but darnit we love Halloween too! Halloween is practically pre-Christmas. It’s the holiday that gets you ready for the big one. In fact, Christmas and Halloween have a lot more in common than you might think.
Fun Fact: Enthusiasts who love both Halloween and Christmas have invented a mashup holiday called Christween!
If you remember much about the holiday classic A Christmas Story, you’ll recall the scene in which the Parker clan ventures downtown to watch the annual Christmas Parade. They snag a prime spot in front of Higbees Department Store and marvel at marching bands, garish floats, Santa Claus and even Mickey Mouse being pestered by the flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz(?)!
For many of us, watching the annual home-town Christmas parade is part and parcel of our Christmas traditions. That’s because Christmas parades serve to usher in the excitement of the holiday season.
