Czech Museum & Library Christmas Displays Brings Out Old Decorations

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Longtime Cedar Rapids residents may see some familiar Christmas decorations in a different location this holiday season.

The mechanical Santa and Elves display in this window used to go up every holiday in the main window of Killian's Department store. That large downtown retailer closed more than 20 years ago, but many residents may have fond memories of these movable figures in the store window. They were recently donated to the National Czech and Slovak museum and library and getting them back in holiday shape was a labor of love.

"A lot of hours over the fall getting them working and their clothing cleaned and we still have a couple more we can't display this year because they need more extensive repairs," Grant Smith, with the National Czech and Slovak museum and library said.

After Killian's closed, the figures were on display for years in a hotel lobby. They're in a storefront window on 16th Avenue SW this season.
They may move next Christmas, but will always stay in Czech Village.
