Part 2 1950’s Christmas video Enjoy!
From the 1950’s a retro holiday!
Back in December of 1956 I was 9 years old and one early one day in December, my Sister came home from the store and woke me up and said, Mike the Cop was outside with the other kids and he was taking them all to the movie theater for a Christmas show with Christmas movies, and a chance to win prizes!
I got dressed fast as I could and ran outside and Mike was about 2 houses away with the kids they were a little older than me and they didn’t want me to go with them to the show.
But Mike said, no! he’s allowed to come with us and so I went, we walked up to the theater about 25 blocks from my house, we always walked around then so it never bothered us. The show was fun to say the least.
We saw 2 movies then the theater manager would come out on stage and we would sing holiday music as I remember, then he would hold a raffle for the prizes and whomever had the winning ticket got to take home a great prize most of the time it was a new bike! Once my Cousin won a bike at one of the shows and rode it all the way home with a big smile on his face!

This was fun to do in the 1960s, it was a new dance craze that caught on like fire! I remember it well I never did learn how to do it but a few friends I knew could work it.
It was a great time fot dance crazes There was the Pony dance and others I will post later on when I come back as this is a test entry again to try out this new editor.
This is me when I was a kid at 10 years old not, really but it is very close I had redish hair with freckles and on summer days I wore polo shirts like this and had a blast as a kid. You can view more about my photo on the button link below.
I don’t have any other photos of me as a kid only one I have posted with my cousin, and a friend and me on the porch in 1957..

Father Knows Best
This is a story about 1950’s TV in the 1950s my family and I watched the TV show, Father Knows Best, it was a great show starring the Andersons with, Margaret, Jim, Betty, Bud, and Kathy. My friend and I had a crush on Betty [princess] and Bud was about the same age as my friend and I and we liked the same things he did. And Kathy was the youngest one [Kitten] As her Dad called her and a cutie.
The show was on on a number of years and was a radio show before that a very popular one. Their Christmas show is on very once in a while there were only 2 that I know of one where the go out to cut down their own tree like their father used to do. And then they get snowbound and find out the true meaning of the holiday.
The other epeisode was one where an Aunt comes for a visit and gets off to a bad start with kathy and it works out fine in the end, yeah it was a great show to watch and many others at the time great TV in the 1950s
I took this photo when I went to New York a few years ago, I’m trying out the new editor to get the feel of it.
Here’s some holiday music I’ve put together for your listening pleasure till,
January 6th The player will be located under the Rocking Jukebox also!
