Christmas of the Future

In December 1960, this is how the Christmas of the Future was imagined at Disneyland. Artificial trees were placed in the small body of water outside of the Monsanto House of the Future with plenty-o-packages tucked underneath. I wonder how many kids tried to jump in the water to fetch those big gleaming packages?

When did Disney start putting the star on top of the Matterhorn? It's missing from this photo.

What a cool find. I've never seen these Xmas trees before. I love 1960's Christmas d├ęcor.

MRaymond, The Christmas star on top of the Matterhorn debuted the following year in December 1961.

Cool, man! I hope those Christmas trees rotated and had color wheels beneath them!
