Midcentury Christmas with historian Leslie Goddard

November 27, 2023 @ 10:30 am

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