I just HAD to share my 1972 picture with Santa. Rich’s downtown Atlanta — and yes the Pink Pig was of course ridden in fear.
I was skeptical of Santa at this point… much to my mother’s mortified face as I looked at his beard and taped on white felt eyebrows. I think the camera caught this too. You think? I remember thinking ‘Dude….I don’t think that beard is real’ which I completely voiced to my parents in the car on the ride home. I loved that dress too. The Peter Pan collar with three buttons. The French cuff sleeves (I had no clue what French cuff sleeves were at 7 but I obviously loved it even then!).
Christmas changes for everyone through the years. I do believe in the spirit of the season. Whatever you celebrate. Make it magical. Find your Christmas Cheer for everyone to see and hear! (I got that from the movie ELF which is ONE of my favorite holiday movies…. exactly).
From my home to yours – I hope magical moments are abundant… and if they aren’t…MAKE SOME!
