To celebrate the holidays, I can't think of a better way than looking back at the Christmas celebrations of years past.

For Christmas Eve we are looking at the Magic Kingdom Christmas Parade during the 25th-anniversary celebration of the Magic Kingdom.

This parade is something of an American Christmas tradition, with it being televised every Christmas Day, but it has gone through changes over the years.

The toy soldiers have been a constant theme over the years in varying places in the parade.

As has Mickey and Minnie's Christmas tree float.

Goofys float has changed significantly since Magic Kingdom's 25th anniversary.

Another lost float, the Song of the South/ Splash Mountain float.

Another forgotten character, Roger Rabbit joins in the celebration on a Christmas train.

The walkaround characters between the floats have changed over the years.

Snow White remains in the parade but now has her own gazeebo with her prince instead of a Snow Man.

Elves dancing in anticipation of Santa.

Finally, we look at the original parade reindeer with the long tounges as Santa approaches in the background.
