Old Fashioned Santas
Don and I escaped with a one of our favorite classics... with the help of an old fashioned DVD.
I always prefer the classic Christmas movies. No Hallmark Christmas movies for me. This is my favorite Santa of all. He was the Macy's Santa in Miracle on 34th Street. Macy's in NYC, will have no Santa in their store this year. First time in nearly 160 years.
Santa Behind Plexiglass
Some malls will have Santas. Kids are flexible. They can enjoy fist bumping Santa through plexiglass. They haven't had decades and decades of Santa memories to make this idea nauseating.
But, if I had young kids right now I would skip Santa this year. There are a million ways to celebrate without a Santa visit. This seems creepy to me.
NYC Macy's Santa in 1963
This is my only Santa memory at all. I look like I'm about to bust out laughing.
Mom took us to see Santa at Macy's in 1963. Dad was working late and we were killing time, before picking him up. After seeing Santa, we stepped outside and it had gotten dark. It was snowing. Best memory ever.
I hope next year kids can visit Santa, without masks and plexiglass.
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
