Do you remember Christmas in Nashville, 1963? Santa arrived at Sears by helicopter. Downtown department stores bustled with shoppers. The city’s Christmas tree for the first time boasted lights that turned color to a musical beat. The Christmas parade drew 100,000 people despite a fierce, cold wind. You could buy a car for $2,046. Women wore bouffant hairdos – except for Minnie Pearl, who wore her trademark flower-bedecked straw hat with the dangling price tag while peddling her holiday book – and Mother Nature brought 8 inches of snow to the city, bestowing a white Christmas on ecstatic children. These stories and photographs, first published by The Tennessean in November and December 1963, are a glimpse at that holiday season from 50 years ago, with all its quirks, flaws and fun.
