Program Description

Event Details

For decades, Christmas in Chicago meant a trip or two to State Street. This new lecture explores the history of Christmas at the big department stores stores on State Street. We'll use photos, ads and memorabilia to trace the cherished traditions including the animated window displays and beloved characters like the Cinnamon Bear and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. 

When you register for this event, we will email you a link to a Zoom meeting. If you need any help, please send us an email at cstream@cslibrary.org or call us at 630-344-6123.
