Remembering When

The mail was delivered twice a day during the Christmas season

Mom made baked apples sprinkled with cinnamon

Christmas stockings were filled with christmas ribbon candy, peanut brittle, nuts and tangerines

Looking at page after page in the Sears and Roebucks toy catalog

Newspapers added a special booklet of Christmas carols

Hallmarks "Amahl and the Night Visitors"

Everyone had a real Christmas tree

The "I Remember Mama" special...."The night the animals talked"

Milk bottles were delivered with a little Christmas greeting around the neck of the bottle

Thinking you would never fall asleep, then suddenly it was Christmas
