Vintage Christmas


This would have to be one of my favorite Holidays of all times, drinking egg nog, going to see all the different lights, Hanging up the stockings as well CHRISTMAS MUSIC. Christmas is the time to show your Christmas sprit, by decorating your house. Yes we all have our traditions. In the old day kids doing their chores and making sure their sock where washed put them up on the fire place to dry. Most families didn't have enough to get Christmas trees, trying to find somewhere to put the gifts for the kids.


Stockings where born. Toys and yummy treats where put into their socks. So every year on December 25 stocking all over the world are stuffed with goodies. Everyone celebrates Christmas different not every house hold is the same as well as the decorations.

Without decorations it wouldn't feel like Christmas. Here are some awesome pictures of Vintage Items that help bring these homes alive on Christmas.
