A 1950’s Christmas


Christmas in rural Pennsylvania.

A black and white Christmas from the 1950’s.  This was the full gift display for our family of 6 at the time, 3 adults, 3 children.

It was my first year at Catholic school, and I was so impressed. Mine was the “sister” doll. The dollhouse was for my older sister, the youngest was an infant at the time.

A bit leggy and in need of a trim, the freshly cut tree and its pine fragrance remains vivid in my memory.  (As does the floral wallpaper!)

A much simpler time, for sure.

  1. Is that the crèche under the tree? When we were young kids, the “manger scene” was placed under the tree, but in later years, presumably to protect it from marauding present rattlers (or maybe the cat) it was displayed on a table top.

    Lovely memory. Merry merry!

  2. Love the tinsel, too! How wonderful to reminiss of the history of your life’s journey. Memories can be sweet reminders of love❤️
