Christmas was a magical time for a child in the1960s. The Christmas tree sparkled with tinsel and ornaments, the twinkling lights filled the dimly familiar rooms with a whole new ambiance of hope and possibilities. Christmas carols played on the hi-fi, and fruity punch was served out of a sparking crystal bowl into small, matching cups.
We believed a jolly man would sneak into our homes while we slept. How hard we tried to stay awake to spot him in the skies, hoping to catch him eating the cookies we left out for him.
At the first crack of daylight we excitedly shook our siblings awake and ran down the stairs in our still-warm pajamas to find our names amongst the gayly wrapped packages; a bicycle with a banana seat! A life size doll! The best Christmas ever!
