Friday Finds December 2016

A holiday Friday Finds!

American Christmas holiday design and decoration is often inspired by two distinct periods- the Victorian era or the 1960s.

I love The Muppet Christmas Carol and have always wondered how Michael Caine felt about the movie– now I know!

The most popular toys by decade since the 1950s. Of course I had a Cabbage Patch doll!

The first department store Santa was in Brockton, MA!

 

Making gingerbread cookies is a holiday tradition in my family ( we made ours this past Sunday!) so I loved this video about the unknown history of gingerbread men cookies!

Why we eat candy canes at Christmas.

Dangerous holiday decorations of the past.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside is one of my least favorite holiday songs, particularly because it appears the dude singing spikes the girl’s drink. So a couple in Minnesota rewrote the lyrics.

Wishing you and yours all the best for the holiday season!
