Friday evening was filled with shimmer and glee as the Holiday House celebrated its 40th anniversary. Locals, regulars and newcomers began lining up at 4 p.m. with chairs and blankets to prepare for a 90-minute wait.

Once open, the room quickly filled with hundreds of visitors eager to scope out the goodies inside and to check in with Santa.
