Here’s some, uh, trippy Technicolor Christmas fun for you and yours this Christmas: A 1982 coloring book given out to children visiting Santa at malls across the country, including the West Manchester Mall.
I found my copy at a local estate sale. You can see the front and back covers above – and as a special bonus, I’ve scanned the entire comic-book-style story, so that you can print it out and enjoy coloring scenes like “Santa gives Hairhed a baby buggy in trade for his Christmas sock.” (Wait’ll you see Hairhed…)
And, if you would like to see some TRUE Christmas art (not cartoon aliens), I encourage you to check out my husband’s post from this week on Papergreat, where she shares a festive Christmas matchbook from D.F. Stauffer Biscuit Co. of York!
