In 1999, our city Christmas Parade had the theme of "Christmas Past". There were lots of floats with Santas and elves etc. My favorite Christmas was 1968 and involved Apollo 8. I designed and built with my kid's school a float with this theme. Here was the model of the flight around the moon on Christmas Eve night.:D

When our float made its trip around the town square, there were comments: "I know WHOSE float THAT is!!!" We had the recording of the actual reading from the book of Genesis from the orbit around the moon on the float.:eek:
