Breckenridge Bulletin; Dec 26, 1907;
Christmas In The Mountains
  Christmas in Breckenridge was a most lovely sun-shiny day, and sleighing was superb. It was quiet in town, but from the amount of shopping previously done and the number of Christmas trees carried into homes, it was the liveliest and most joyful home day the town has ever seen. All the mines, mills and other industries took a day off, and all laboring men enjoyed the day. The stores all closed at noon.
  At the Methodist church Christmas eve a Sunday school entertainment and Christmas tree was enjoyed, which surpassed anything of the kind previously held at that church. The audience packed the building to its utmost, and every one present hugely enjoyed the program by the little folks, which consisted of songs, solos, duets, declamations, etc. The old folks took back seats and drank in the inspiration of youthful smiles and laughter, until it is more than probable that the majority of them that night dreamed of home and mother and Santa Clause. Each Sunday school scholar received a sack of sweetmeats from the tree, and went home brim full of a joy "that passeth understanding".
For Christmas.
  And New Year's holidays the Colorado & Southern will sell tickets to state points at one fare for the round trip. Tickets on sale December 24th, 25th, 31st and January 1st, good to return until January 3rd.
