Live In the Now!
The first year I bought an Empire Santa blowmold lamp like my Mom had (has!)
Last year, I actually found an inflatable Santa. He's not quite the same as what we had at home (he's got a pack on his back), but he's pretty darn close.
I feel like a kid again every time I blow Santa (up)!
And this year I found these for less than $10.
Ha ha! Guess what I'll be making this weekend when I should be making Christmas presents?
I can only think of one more prominent Christmas decoration from my childhood--it was this plastic Santa head that was embossed and you hung it on the wall. Kind of like those Halloween masks from the 80s, but not quite. It was larger and well, wasn't a mask.
I remember my Old Man trying to trick me into thinking Santa would wink when I wasn't looking. Ha ha!
