Lancaster County man creating new holiday traditions by remembering Christmas past in Columbia

A Lancaster County man has come to be known as "the Keeper of Christmas" thanks to his involvement at a special local holiday attraction. -

"One of the more popular exhibits is 'A Christmas Story,'" said Enterline.

Or, take a stroll through a re-creation of 1950s Columbia, Pennsylvania, where Abel grew up.

"Before the malls, the shops in each town, they put lights up," said Morrison. "And it would all be decorated."

He says his memories of that time gone by are "so special" and he wanted future generations to be able to experience that same feeling walking by the storefronts.

There are four stores you can walk in and experience, including Woolworth's and a Sweet Shop. Abel says Morrison is "a visionary" in putting together this entire collection, calling it "amazing."
