Christmas in the 1950s by Barbara Jean Smith Parker

This was about 1954-55. Notice the very large TV in the
corner. The tree was decorated with large cookies that
we decorated. The pattern for the cookies were taken
from color books and then painted with a paint brush and
frosting. The boys would put all of the cookies out on
Christmas Eve before they went to bed and Santa would
bring a tree and on Christmas morning. Lo and behold there
was a decorated tree with all of the packages underneath!
It was a fun tradition and lasted for quite a few years.
Now all three of these little boys are grandfathers. Where did
the time go?
