Silent Sunday, Afternoon Edition: 12/12/10

One of the things Red Dirt Kelly LOVES is finding talent, photos, literature, or other media with anything in their name related to Oklahoma.  Above is the OK Chorale (sometimes performing as a single quartet) from New Zealand. She’s never heard the “12 Days of Christmas” like this, and guesses you may not have either.  Enjoy!

Top your holiday look off with a red sweater knit or sassy Santa ladies handbag...found at The Shoe Gallery in Northpark Mall, Oklahoma City, OK. Click photo to visit the Shoe Gallery website.
If you aren't as much of the "Red" persuasion as you are Orange, you could celebrate your Christmas time by decorating with these Pistol Pete Wagon Wheeles. Contact artist Jan Kuehn by e-mailing her:
"Enter, all who are willing to come..." The First Presbyterian Church in Enid, OK is ready for the holidays. I'm sure the services will be much warmer than the outside weather we've been having this weekend! Consider visiting the church of your choice for Christmas services coming soon.

And speaking of Enid, OK - their "Main Street" project has really improved the Downtown area over the past several years. The Gaslight Theatre (shown here) is hoppin', and the downtown shops are really something special. Click photo to visit the Main Street Enid project website.
And speaking of Christmas entertainment, 100 years ago an ad ran in the Daily Oklahoman December 12, 1910 issue for a "Victors Victrola" from Schmelzer Arms Company at 107 West Main street, Downtown Oklahoma City. For a range of $10 to $100 (or $25 to $250) you could have lasting entertainment for the whole family!
