Merry Christmas

This is me 1961 at Toyland on the top floor of Pomeroy's department store in Reading, Pennsylvania.  Santa was in the corner of the floor so you could see him as you walked around the toys and the animated Christmas figures.  I thought I was in heaven.  And by the look on my face I had a crush on Santa.  Notice the cute cat and coat combo.  I loved that coat and sure wish I had it now.  The coat and hat were in a box of clothes some "rich people" would sometimes give to my dad for his daughters.  It was like gold when he would get a box of clothes.  Christmas past was the most fun ever.  Right?

I remember Pomeroy's they are long gone along with Wanamaker's, Strawbridge and Clothier and Gimble's. I must say you look adorable and quite styling in your beautiful coat and hat!

I loved going to the departments stores in Paterson, NJ, with my mother. We'd get the bus on our corner and have a fun day shopping and eating lunch out and visiting Santa. Thanks for sharing your photo and helping me to recall some of the best memories of Christmas past.
