The Christmas season is a time for traditions, and in Richmond, one particular custom reigned supreme: a family outing to Miller & Rhoads department store. There, thousands of smiling faces would be waiting to enter the kingdom of Santaland - an enchanted world marked by glittering snow and intricate train displays. From visits to area hospitals to a sound man who demanded only a box of raisins, former Snow Queen Donna Strother Deekens shares her touching and humorous holiday memories from her twenty years in the gown. Kids from one to ninety-two will enjoy reminiscing with characters like the elves, Bruce the Spruce, and od course, Miller & Rhoads's legendary "real Santa." Discover behind-the-scenes drama and learn firsthand what it was like to partake in this unforgettable event.
