Re: Happy Holly

Back when I was very young, I always looked forward to watching Happy Holly on our black-and-white tv as the days before Christmas counted down. Happy Holly, a spritely girl dressed as an elf, would contact Santa via a magical television-radio: "Happy Holly calling Santa Claus!--Happy Holly calling Santa Claus!--Come in, Santa Claus!"
Santa would appear in his North Pole workshop, read letters from children, show Christmas cartoons, and display many of the new toys of the season. It was magical in its own special way, and only lasted a few seasons, if I recall.
