Remember a time... A time when every Christmas tree was real. A time when Christmas shopping meant paging through a Sears & Roebuck catalog, and heading downtown to Main Street. A time when Christmas dinner was prepared from canning jars lining the pantry shelves, and from fruits and vegetables grown in your own garden. Christmas meant the arrival of Norman Rockwell paintings of Santa on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post, and hand-written letters addressed to the North Pole with wishes for record players, train sets and Raggedy Ann dolls. An Old-Fashioned Christmasinvites readers tore-live the memories that guide our hearts homeward to the much-loved traditions of yesteryear.
