Snoopy greets one-year-old Raeghan Thompson, from Newport Beach, Calif., at the "Snoopy House" display that Jim Jordan started 44 years ago, Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2011, on the lawn outside City Hall in Costa Mesa, Calif. The city of Costa Mesa offered to host the massive, animated display of Charles Schulz's "Peanuts" Christmas characters after Jordan lost the home where the tradition was born and flourished to foreclosure. The move saved a wildly popular Christmas display that Jordan says draws 80,000 people _ including busloads of visitors, school groups and lines of children waiting to see Santa.
