Do you remember?

Do you remember Christmas's of years past? I don't honestly know if I remember this Christmas, or if my memory stems from seeing the picture over and over. If you're close to my age, you no doubt have a similar picture of one of your early Christmas's. The TV console in the background with the round tube. If you're younger you're probably wondering why I'm wearing a little short sleeve dress. All little girls wore such dresses. In those days they didn't (we didn't) wear pants, boys wore pants. We didn't wear skirts, skirts and sweaters where for when you got older; little girls really didn't wear the same things as their mothers just in smaller sizes like they do now. You didn't see little girls with tats, or piercings, they didn't wear black. We all must have kept our houses warmer in those days too. I do remember it being very cold walking to school with our legs out. We did sometimes where pants under our dresses; but those pants naturally had to be taken off when we arrived at school and hung up our coats in the cloak room. I feel pretty certain this little dress was pink and I was thrilled with it; and thus was showing it off.

Do you have such memories?

  2. Ahhhhhhhhh! Back in the day....I also have pictures of a more simple happy time...I have a co worker who is my age...most of the others around us are 1/2 our age..and they have no idea what we are talking about most of the time. We often speak of these dresses, the patent leather shoes black at Christmas, white at Easter. And the dresses....I remember that my mom and I had
    matching dresses one summer, pink checks.. It was great to be a little girl back then. I am glad for that...thanks for the memories...I like
    to travel those now...it was a better time...

  3. Ps, I remember the tv console, and looking at your picture..the tinsel on the tree..do they even sell tinsel? We had tinsel which belonged to my grandmother, and my mom kept it every year
    and put it away nicely in the box...I inherited that tinsel, which had long since lost it's luster...when my son was old enough to touch the
    tree I stopped..the tinsel was old and had lead in it. I like the look of the tinsel, and by the way you look lovely in your shiny little dress..

  4. Oh, I certainly do. I used to sew both my daughters special dresses for the holidays, worn for a very short time during that day as they exchanged it for their snowsuits to try out their new sled or skates.

  5. Hello.....on the Shopping with a Hero...I do believe it is through out the country..it is sponsered by stores, for instance the kids got $100 each from WalMart to shop with, the stores pick the various fire or police dept. and then those places pick kids to go shopping...There was a big thing on the news, here, about the one Meijer's did but not WalMart...There was 10 kids that got to go shopping on Friday. and the kids names were gotten from Holiday Depot which is a local thing sponsered by United Way, that families can sign up for if they do not have money to buy for their kids for Christmas, United way gives the names of families or kids to people that want to "adopt" for the holiday's...

  6. Thanks Wendy for the feedback. What a wonderful program, I've not known about it before and must pass along the news. Always good to find out about worthy programs.

  7. I have a picture similar to yours. However, the one I most cherish is the year I was Dale Evans. I had the red and white skirt, the fringed shirt, and the boots. There must have been a cowboy (girl) hat but it is not in the picture. Like yu I don't know if this is a real memory or one brought on because of the picture.

  9. HI SANDY,
    WOW!! DOES THAT PICTURE BRING BACK MEMORIES. WHEN I WENT TO SCHOOL WITH MY BROTHER'S AND SISTER'S WE WERE ALL BUNDLED UP WITH SCARVES,HATS, AND MITTENS. YOU WERE LUCKY IF YOU HAD A PAIR OF SNOW PANTS AND BOOTS. WE HAD RUBBER BOOTS, AND WORE OUR PANTS LIKE YOU DID, OR BACK THEN THEY SOLD LONG COTTON STOCKINGS THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN, THEY KEPT YOU WARM, BUT WHEN I THINK ABOUT IT NOW, IT WAS KIND OF FUNNY. I WOULDN'T MIND GOING BACK AGAIN, THEY WERE GREAT DAYS BACK THEN. HAVE A NICE DAY. RIZZI
