Just a week earlier, Kasem had her first opportunity to see this year's Winter Wonderland when she rode by on a float in the Hollywood Christmas Parade. The theme of the float was the precept“Love and Help Children” from The Way to Happiness, the nonreligious moral code written by Mr. Hubbard.

“Winter Wonderland is a beautiful annual tradition,” said Kasem,“and it is wonderful to see so many children enjoying themselves for the holidays.”

Once the ribbon was cut, the fun began, including live entertainment, face painting, and Santa, who held court with his elves in his cabin where he gave out Christmas gifts and posed for photos with the kids.

The tradition of L. Ron Hubbard's Winter Wonderland began in 1983 when author, humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard first presented a giant Christmas tree in a holiday setting as a gift to the children of Hollywood. The Friends of L. Ron Hubbard Foundation and the Church of Scientology continue the four-decade tradition, providing a safe and beautiful location for families throughout the holidays.“We hope to welcome everyone to enjoy this setting for many more generations to come,” said Friends of L. Ron Hubbard spokesperson Louis Ricketts.

Winter Wonderland features a 6,000-pound grand fir in a forest of evergreens surrounding Santa's home and a banner carrying Mr. Hubbard's timeless message:“On the day when we can fully trust each other, there will be peace on Earth.”
