Christmas Past

I was just thinking about the first Christmas I remember . We were still living in London so it had to be before 1950. We had a little green tree which stood on the dining room table covered with glass prisms from some chandelier and white candles.  I remember the fireplace with its warm coal embers... and having gone to some department store where I saw Santa and received a tiddly winks game... I remember walking outside the store and seeing elaborate Christmas store windows...

Not too long afterwards we were off to the US.... this is a scrapbook page I made with a picture of our first American tree.
