Mistletoe and mood rings weren’t the only goodies in the 1975 Christmas stocking. Parties, presents, shopping, tree decorating and most of all the “impossible” white Christmas made the holiday one to remember.

Scott Woelk is pleased that Santa Claus, Ned Parrett, can deliver his requests: “Now Santa that’s Lisa and Kathy and Terry and Susan and … .”

The Music Department caught the Christmas spirit early as the band and choirs spent the weeks after Thanksgiving rehearsing for their concerts. New additions to the A Capella concert were Christmas carols by soloists and a verse of “Silent Night” in Swedish by exchange student Lotta Rüdh.

NHS had an early case of Christmas spirit too. In early December, they began selling candy canes to raise money for their scholarship fund.

“We didn’t make as much as expected,” said president Nicky Gyles, “but we did pretty good.”

As classrooms took on a holiday look and plans for future parties were made, the anticipation built. Posters were put out early for the Christmas dance with the theme “Christmas in Germany.” With Jericho set to play, everything was ready early … almost. With only a week left to dance time, no chaperones were found. However, as the day crept closer and the possibility of cancellation threatened, they were located and the dance went on as planned.

Patty Horner and Karl Killian agreed that “the band was great and the dance was a big success.”

Christmas 1975. It was remembered by most students for special reasons — presents received or given, friends and family, snow and sledding. But whatever the reason, it was remembered.
