There was nothing more exciting than seeing Happy Holly for a few minutes on each weekday during the holiday season. My sister and I would run to the TV set from across the house yelling "Happy Holly", Happy Holly." We were entranced as she would try to contact Santa Claus at the North Pole. Over the years, I have asked many people who lived in the bay area in the 50's, if they remembered Happy Holly". Almost no one did. I had a great deal of affection for Happy Holly. That little elf was one of the highlights of my early childhood at Christmas's. Thank you for validating my memories and jogging the special feelings that I used to have.
