The minute the Sears Wishbook landed on our doorstep, the Christmas countdown had officially begun. My brother and I would spend weeks leading up to the big day sifting through the Wishbook, JCPenney’s, and Montgomery Ward catalogs; circling everything we wanted that year. Needless to say, those books were in pretty rough shape by the time Christmas eve rolled around.
I love reminiscing about those days when things were so much simpler and my imagination was on hyper-drive. The sheer anticipation of Christmas morning is something I definitely miss these days, nothing has really ever come close to that feeling.
