Christmas Past: How the Leafs Celebrated

Around this time of year, I always checked the sports pages for news of how the Maple Leafs spent their time during the holiday season.

For many players in the Original Six era, Christmas gatherings with family and friends would have to be planned ahead of Christmas Day, as games were scheduled on the 25th.
