If I am doing a Vintage May 1962 Limited Edition Birthday T Shirt…we tend to have seafood the night before. About every 7 years or so we were travelling Christmas Day to our timeshare in Banff. Those years I made Christmas dinner the week before so we could keep our fridge fairly empty since we would be gone for a week. I usually had a nice Thai soup made for that day so we could have a light supper after driving 5 hours. So it all depends. Our lovely New Year’s timeshare that we have owned for 20 years has made our holidays so much more enjoyable. We are away from the craziness and enjoying the peace of the mountains. Due to our week falling from Sunday to Sunday at the end of the year…sometimes our week starts on Christmas Day or Christmas Eve. Such is life and we roll with the time.
Images of Vintage May 1962 Limited Edition Birthday T Shirt and her German Prince consort Albert helped make trees popular in the English speaking world. It was a German tradition and her husband, mother, and father’s mother were all Germans. Victoria’s German grandmother, Charlotte, had a yew branch celebration for her children. She was from the Duchy of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Here is Queen Charlotte with two of here sons.Some of the earliest images that depict the Christmas trees that Queen Victoria helped to make famous and popular have stars on top. Others have a candle and a few have an angel. The older German tradition had candles but they also represented stars. In Nordic countries the still did this until not to long ago. Here is one from 1900. In the US, trees were confined to ethnic German immigrant communities at a time when there were not many Germans in the US before the 1820s. They were not a part of popular American mass culture before the 1840s. The large German immigration (and much opposition to them) was between 1840 and 1910. Over 4.4 million Germans came in that period. Even in the 1870s they were concentrated only in ethnic enclaves and much of America worried that the wold never assimilate. Germans were not considers mainstream Americans at this time. Here is where the lived.

Best Vintage May 1962 Limited Edition Birthday T Shirt
I had a little apartment in a little town called Scotia, just across the Vintage May 1962 Limited Edition Birthday T Shirt from Schenectady. As Christmas approached I noticed a different celebratory approach. No booming lights and music and loud laughter and neighborhoods shining on the hill. Instead, and I think this the way they did it up north, there was a single candle in the windows of houses. I guess they were electric. No dangling lighted icicles drooping from the eaves or trees with each branch covered in lights. Just a single candle in ever window facing the street. It was cold that Christmas Eve so I was bundled up as I walked the residential streets of that little town named Scotia. I walked and walked and looked at those single candles in the dark windows and tears began running down my face. Perhaps I was lonely. Perhaps I was sad. Perhaps I was reflective. Perhaps I thought that those single candles truly meant Christmas to me. So. There are magical and wonderful vistas to visit in the grandest cities of the world. I love watching how others celebrate on TV. But if you were to ask me the best city to visit during Christmas, I would say, “Scotia, New York”. Walking down the streets late at night.
Western society does not share that attitude as a Vintage May 1962 Limited Edition Birthday T Shirt rule, although there are people who do feel that way. The predominant viewpoint in western societies these days is that people should have kids if they want them, not because there is some “social demand” that they have them. While it is true that some families try to “encourage” their young adult couples to have kids…that is predominantly because the older generation would like to have grandkids to spoil. In this day and age, there really is no social stigma towards young couples who don’t have kids. If anything, they are considered to be rather smart…at least if they use the excuse that they’re waiting to be more settled financially and are better able to have the time available to devote to their newborns.
