Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
I spent about an hour yesterday at The City Auditorium attending an antique fair. It really put me in the mood for Christmas.
It was also nice to see some new-to-me vintage Christmas decorations! There were displays of putz houses, vintage Shiny Brite ornaments displayed on metal Christmas trees, festive holiday elves and these cute Christmas cat postcards. What is your favorite childhood Christmas memory? Do the Christmases of your childhood affect how you celebrate the holidays today?
