Christmas (Morty Fink)

Traditionally, Christmas is December 25. But not in 1952 at Kunatah. It was celebrated on July 25.

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.
