    Hosted by San Antonio television personality Thomas Reynolds this Christmas television show features Reynolds bantering with the studio audience and visiting with Santa Claus, as well as sharing touching visits with a young girl with cerebral palsy and 90 year old ‘Grandmother Texas'. Sponsored by CBS-Columbia and San Antonio department store Wolff and Marx, the show includes Reynolds' endorsements of the latest 21" cabinet model CBS Columbia televisions on sale for the holidays. The host also incorporates several other ‘product placement' spots and product give-aways into the program, including local resort the Hill Country Inn, local florist Kelly-Scherrer, Dr. Pepper, Nesco roasters, Piper Aviation, the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, Vision Nylon Hose, and Fan-Glow Heat Air.
