Brin Christmas Party

 December 26, 1967 N-M Northwestern

What joy it must have been for these kids to have received these bikes at Christmas time!  It's bordering on quoting clichés to mention this, but it is so easy to lose sight of the real spirit of giving at this time of year.  The writer of this caption had it right, in capturing the magic of that party for these two little ones.


  1. As a Menasha kid in the 1960's, in the weeks leading up to Christmas, I used to scour the paper every day and cut out anything that had a holiday theme. I think I pasted them in a scrapbook. By the time Christmas Eve rolled around I was ready to explode with excitement. What did everyone else do to prepare for Santa's visit?

    1. Couldn't put the Montgomery Ward Christmas catalog down. My dad called it Monkey Ward.
