We obviously used to get all dressed up for Christmas morning...black patent leather shoes and all! Buggies or carriages have now been replaced by plastic strollers. Televisions today are so sleek compared to the one in this picture, and there was no such thing as a remote control. You actually had to get up and change the channel using a big dial. That sparkly stuff on the tree is called "tinsel". anyone remember that stuff? We would meticulously hang each foil strand one by one on the branches. My brothers were very impatient and would often begin throwing it at the tree and my mom and I would have to go back and fix it. Glad we don't use tinsel on our tree any more! Looks like I got a teddy bear and a tea set which are timeless and treasured by all little girls at some point in their early years. I have many fond memories of Christmas morning with my brothers...walking out and staring in wonder at the gifts around the tree.
How about you? Are there pictures that take you back to happy times long ago? It's hard to believe we are less than a week away from another Christmas morn. Joy, joy, joy!
