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

I love that old photo of the tree and the gifts. Makes me feel nostalgic. We have pictures out from holidays past and of one of my grandma by the tree at my childhood house. I was not born yet but my brother is in the shot. It was 1962. I love that we stumbled upon that one this year. Can't wait to see your 1912 one.
Thank you for sharing these wonderful old photoes ~ how wonderful to see them. Christmas was much simpler back then ~ Have a very Merry Christmas and may God bless you and your family ~

What great old photos- That was quite a year, wasn't it? xo Diana
Beautiful post Ann! Merry Christmas to you my friend, Gail
What a treasure your vintage Christmas photos are, Ann! I think the simple things are the best for Christmas! And that is interesting about no tinsel due to the war. My mom talks about all the rationing during the war. We sure are spoiled now, aren't we? Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday and Merry Christmas. Enjoy the Love of the season.
