It was a kinder, simpler time

Oct. 28, 1957
Los Angeles

The Christmas ads start earlier every year! I remember when the merchants at least used to wait until after Halloween! When I was a kid, you didn't see Christmas ads until after Thanksgiving!! Christmas has gotten so commercial!!

Nobody ever said "Seasons Greetings" or "Happy Holidays" when I was your age!

And going to the movies on Christmas Day? That was unheard of!
