Empty milk crates were wrapped as if they were gifts and placed beneath a pine tree near the flagpole that was draped in willy roll and empty painted #10 cans. One of the many signs posted around camp was: "Merry Christmas - Santa Has His Basic Emblem - Do You?" Christmas carols were heard being sung at campfires. And all this in a kosher camp.
Traditionally, Christmas is December 25. But not in 1952 at Kunatah. It was celebrated on July 25.
