Advent Calendar: The Christmas Tree

December 27, 1958

Remember icicles?   Not the ones dripping from the front porch eave but those magical, petroleum-based wonders wrapped around 8″x12″ cardboard.  After the lights were twined round the freshly cut tree and the ornaments were carefully hung, these thin slivers of silver were flung with little finger glee.  The tree shimmered!

  1. I definitely remember icicles on the tree, thought they were great! Unfortunately, today, no one else in my family feels the same way. Something about making the dog sick and messing up the vacuum cleaner belt…oh, well.
