2008-12-20 Tucson Time Capsule : No joy for town of christmas (starnet-local)
http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/metro/272567.php
Their local cemetery was being swallowed up by mine tailings and the future for the little mining town of Christmas, Ariz., on Dec. 20, 1983, did not look much better. It would probably be the last Christmas in Christmas. The first mining claims in the area, in southern Gila County, had been filed around 1880. But, in 1981, Inspiration Consolidated Copper Co. announced it was closing down the mine and, with it, the company-owned town. Only about 10 residents remained, and they were making plans to move on.
