Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays from St. Louis. The folk lore of this photo is a true holiday tale.
      In 1966, a group of architecture students from Washington University scaled the St. Louis Science Center's Planetarium and left the ribbon as a prank. They would have probably gone undetected, but they left a note tied to a handrail that read "Merry Christmas St. Louis, Washington University School of Architecture."
     No arrests were made, however, because the public's response was so overwhelmingly positive. Planetarium officials made the decision to add the ribbon to their holiday decorations ever since.
