First up, we love finding old recipes for Christmas punch and holiday drinks; these Canada Dry concoctions below are from 1962. In truth, ginger ale really only came into our house during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. It was considered very "adult". We were permitted a toasting "cocktail" which consisted of ginger ale, lots of crushed ice, a maraschino cherry and a lemon twist in a highball glass!
They're followed by another Christmas tree photo with an extraordinary putz village--an oldie but goodie and worth a second look....
Circa 1918 to 1928--courtesy of LOC and sliced and diced so you can appreciate all the vintage village goodness-including the train, boat & fence. This was a labor of love for sure! And finally a page from the 1926 Eatons's showing candy boxes and stockings. Again, click on the photos and links.
