Happy Thursday everyone, if you’re wondering about the title of today’s post I called it that because today is my birthday. 50 years ago today I was born in the hospital at Weatherford, Oklahoma, and because it’s my birthday I thought we would take a look at what Christmas looked like in 1966. I LOVE Christmas decorations from that time, anything actually from the 1930’s through the 1960’s, back then Christmas trees were dripping with sparkly icicles and space-age looking ornaments. Join me for a walk down memory lane as we take a peek back in time and look at Christmas 50 years ago, Enjoy!!! (above image via)
