Christmas Lights (Continued)
is the greeting in this picture of the center circle at the top of
Summit Drive in Curundu Heights. The greeting is the same, spoken
and unspoken, throughout the Canal Zone, the Republic of Panama, and the
world. Spoken, it's in may tongues. Unspoken, it gleams form
thousands of home on the Isthmus in many more thousands of lights and
ingenious decorations. Persons on transiting ships have often
expressed gratitude for the effort put forth on decorations "to
make it a Merry Christmas for people they would never see" - people
far from home. These efforts, and points along the Canal, and in
gaily decorated homes in townsites visible from the Canal.
I hope you all have enjoyed this little blast from our Zonian past. Long live the memory of the Canal Zone.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!
