A trip down memory lane

Back when I was a kid, the major TV networks always ran "Christmas Commercials" around this time of year. I looked forward to them every year, as I knew once I saw these on TV - then Christmas was really imminent!

As an adult, I do not get to watch any where near as much TV as I did as a kid. Plus the fact there are so many channels now - we only had seven to pick from in those days - I don't know if the major networks even do this anymore. Plus the fact that wishing someone a "Merry Christmas" is somehow now taken as an insult.

Back in 1966, when I was 9 years old, this one came out, and for some reason, it has stuck with me; and I have never forgotten it. Maybe it's the simplicity of the message; but it has always stayed within the recesses of my memory. I was able to find it one day, while fooling around browsing YouTube. Here it is for your viewing pleasure:

I hope you enjoy it and take it as a warm wish for peace, joy and love this coming Christmas Season.

  1. Hello Larry,
    Thank you very much for the nice film, best wishes in return. Yesterday we put up our Christmas tree and the kids were very excited. 73 Paul

  2. CBS Sunday Morning just showed that same clip! What a coincidence.

    It just said "Seasons Greetings". I guess PC isn't as new as we thought.
