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?
