'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through The Square, the children gathered to listen to Mr. Jingeling read a classic holiday tale (‘Twas The Night Before Christmas).
Set out your milk and cookies, then meet us in The Square at 2:30 PM OR 3:30 PM for a free live reading of the traditional kids’ story with the Keeper of The Keys!
Mr. Jingeling is a cultural icon that has been unlocking imaginations since 1956 and bestowing magical keys to all he meets. His significance is deeply rooted in Cleveland’s holiday traditions and has left a lasting mark on the city’s history. Over the last 65 years, the famous elf has endured the test of time and continues to delight young and old alike during the Christmas season. Many remember visiting him on “Halle’s 7th Floor,” and hearing the tingling of his many keys. Others grew up watching Mr. Jingeling on television and can recall the famous song synonymous with him.
Merry memories await, as Santa’s most beloved companion once again returns to ring in the holiday cheer. This Christmas, Mr. Jingeling promises to make your spirits bright, and excite an all-new generation of believers.
