A Very Merry Mid-Century Christmas with Leslie Goddard

December 21, 2022 @ 1:00 pm

Christmas in America from the 1940s through the 1960s meant aluminum trees, department store Santas, and cartoon specials on TV. Easy-Bake Ovens, G.I. Joe figures and Slinkys were on every child’s Christmas list. Historian Leslie Goddard is here, along with period photographs, advertisements and catalogs, to explore why this optimistic era was a turning point for how we celebrate the holidays. Don’t miss this delightful look back at the magic of the season!
