Is it just me or is the build up to Christmas better than the actual day? I’m not at all religious, so the holiday doesn’t take on any religious significance for me, but it does ignite feelings of snowy nights, warm fires in the fireplace, decorating the house with my family, and twinkling lights all over the neighborhood. The entire month of December is one big cozy hug for me. So when the actual day comes and goes, I’m left feeling a little…empty. Anyone else?

Either way, I’m going to continue on with my Christmastime is Awesome Time until I crash and burn December 26. So with that, I present you with my latest holiday-themed post. I was sitting here, laptop on lap, with my Christmas tree staring me square in the face, when I thought…I want to see how people of yesterday decorated their trees! I love looking at old photographs, especially of the 40s and 50s. So here are a bunch of cat vomit-inducing tinsel trees coming at ya!
