    One thought on “Christmas Memories: Gifts, Activities, Fads, and Fancies, 1920s-1960s”

    1. This is a light little book that touches on the various trends in Christmas decorations, gift giving, et cetera during the period between 1920 and 1969 in the United States.The information is well-presented with many period illustrations (e.g advertisements, Christmas cards). I found it to be interesting because it helped shed light on the what might have been my parents' childhood experiences and on how the treasures of my childhood Christmases may have found their way into my family's traditio [...]

    2. It was interesting to read but would have liked more information about where the author found some of the illustrations.

    3. This is a terrific book of facts, photos and nostalgia about Christmas during the 20's through the 60's. I learned a lot, and am old enough to remember some. Here are a few interesting tidbits:1920's - Not many homes had electricity so all the sparkle on the trees came from tinsel (made from lead!!) and candles. The Macy's parade began in 1924 with live animals borrowed from the Central Park Zoo.1930's - Greeting cards became popular replacing the Christmas postcard. Radio was the expensive fami [...]

    4. Just a lovely read about Christmases not too long past. I grew up in the 1970s with many of the ornaments and decorations from the 60s chapter, as well as the toys and other things that were part of that decade-- and visiting older family members, there were all of their decorations from the 20s onward. She includes lots of pictures and vintage advertisements to take a reader back in time, through the Depression, World War II, the Baby Boom, and the many changes of the 60s. It was sad and sweet [...]

    5. I love learning about history, pop culture and holiday traditions. This is an awesome book. The author is known for making books about holiday traditions and I now own 3 of her books. They are so pretty to look at. They are something I will have on my shelf every year for Christmas. Beautiful books!

    6. This little book explores the history of Christmas in the U.S. from the 1920's to the 1960's. It covers the evolving tradition and celebration of the holiday and the types of gifts, activities & fads that characterized each decade. I was struck by the influence of war on the celebration which has persisted despite the distinct lack of peace on earth.

    7. I check this book out from the library about once a year. I love the nostalgic look back at the gifts, decorations, food and clothing from Christmases past. I also wish I could still get some of the deocorations that were sold then.

    8. The title led me to believe this was going to be sort of a crafts book. However, it was a thoroughly researched and well organized history of Christmas in the US from the 1920's through the 1960's. I was really hoping to find something about the Victorian Riot of Ribbons, but no luck.

    9. A very enjoyable Christmas book. I learned so much about the history of Christmas decorations and Santa Clause, it was fascinating!

    10. This book was really fun and full of information of how our traditions started. Although I was born in the 1950s I thought the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s were fascinating. This was a fantastic book
