Take Me Back Tuesday ~Christmas 1971

 

1971 Christmas

Take me back to my third Christmas!  I was 1 month shy of being 3 years old.  My brother would have been almost 6.  Hanging the stockings up on the fireplace was a Christmas Eve tradition in our house.  I bet my Mom still has those stockings somewhere!  

Look!  Santa brought me a Winnie the Pooh See and Say, you know when you pull the string and the character talks to you!  I still remember that Eeyore said “It aint much of a tail, but I am sort of attached to it”!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Tuesday friends!

 

Got some Christmas photos of your own that need to be scanned?  Well get them scanned and head on over to Kari’s!

I'm new to TMBT and just posted my first. I chose a Christmas theme as you did.

Great pics!

I didn't grow up with a fireplace as my mom and I always lived in apartments or in a house without a fireplace. I always wanted that tradition. Now I have one and we use it 24-7 and the stockings are hung on our banister! It is too hot and they would burn. So much for that dream, eh?

Thanks for sharing and have a merry, merry Christmas Lori!!

Absolutely fabulous photos! I was just looking at my 70's Christmas photos on Monday with my daughter. Wow! We had great toys back then!

Wishing you a delightful Merry Christmas and a joy filled New Year!

Great pictures! I was planning on getting some of my old Christmas pics scanned, but I never had time to dig around at my parents house. We are heading over there today to hook up their new surround system and set up their other electronic gifts, maybe I will have time to dig out some other pictures.

Thanks for sharing!

Love the picture of the stocking hanging by the fire. Never had a fire to hang buy as a kid or an adult.
