What did Christmas look like?
1515 in 1942
a small simple tree with a strand of lights, shiny bright
ornaments and tinsel.
Probably the last year to use tinsel since it
was not available during the war.
Oranges and nuts under the tree.
Gifts wrapped in tissue paper.
Christmas Eve Dinner 1942
The mood is somber.
The table is candlelit.
I am sure they are thinking of what lies ahead.
My Dad will graduate from HS the next year
and head to the Pacific.
It is was a simple Christmas
But the meaning was there
being with family and being
thankful for what you have not what you
My next post will be
Thank you to all of you
for your wonderful friendships this year.
They are so cherished.
