A mile of make-believe : a history of the Eaton's Santa Claus parade
Penfold, Steven, 1966- author
London : University of Toronto Press, 
Introduction: Alfreda's lament -- 1. The corporate fantastic -- 2. Santa in public -- 3. The mediated Santa -- 4. The civic fantastic -- 5. Casualty of the times -- Conclusion: Enchanted capitalism.
"By focusing on the pioneering effort of the Eaton's department store Steve Penfold argues that the parade ultimately represented a paradoxical form of cultural power: it allowed Eaton's to press its image onto public life while also reflecting the decline of the once powerful retailer. Penfold's analysis reveals the "corporate fantastic"--a visual and narrative mix of meticulous organization and whimsical style--and its influence on parade traditions. Penfold's considerable analytical skills have produced a work that is simultaneously a cultural history, history of business and commentary on consumerism. Professional historians and the general public alike would be remiss if this wasn't on their holiday wish list."--

"Festivals and ceremonials played a major role in the Spanish world; through them local identities as well as a common Spanish culture made their presence manifest within and beyond the peninsula through ephemeral displays, music and print. This book explores Habsburg visual culture at court and its connection with the creation of a language of triumph, the relationship between religion and the empire, and examines cultural, artistic and musical exchange in Naples and Rome. Taken together these essays contribute further to our growing appreciation of the importance of early-modern festival cultures in general, and their significance in the world of the Spanish Habsburgs in particular"--Provided by publisher.
