The Craftsmen's Classic was founded 43 years ago by the Gilmore family of Greensboro, NC. Clyde Gilmore, a jewelry maker, wanted to create a "family" of artists and craftsmen, nationwide, that could stage indoor festivals showcasing their totally original works and interact one-on-one with the public. The first such event, the "granddaddy" and prototype of all the others on today's schedule, was the Christmas Classic, Thanksgiving Weekend, at the Greensboro Coliseum.
The Original Christmas Classics are what I remembered when I was small. But the new holiday movies are becoming classics too. Like Elf, A Christmas Story, (which played all day on TBS on Christmas Day) – even Home Alone is linked to Christmas.
