This morning Tamirisc and I were having some pillow talk time. I love pillow talk! Anyway, we were discussing the movie we watched last night. Yes, it was a Christmas movie.
The movie had in it old fashion store Christmas windows that included animated dolls,animated elves, trains and more. We were discussing how the stores do not have them any more, at least not the way I remember them. I was explaining to him that I thought this was sad that new generations have not grown up with that wonderment.
When I was a child, my parents dressed us up in Christmas outfits and took us to the city, that being St. Louis. At that time the biggest department store was Famous-Barr (it was bought out by Macy's who eventually tore the store down). Famous-Barr were notorious for their huge Christmas window displays and everyone flocked to them to see them.

Of course we got our photo taken and told him our secret wishes but he also passed out candy canes and a real wrapped gift. Wow!
I am sorry that our children are not entitled to those days of wonderment, those days of specialness, those days of just being a kid. I really am sorry, but in the same sense, I am thankful that I got to enjoy the wonderment of being a kid at Christmas.
