(Almost) Wordless Wednesday – Christmas 1961

Christmas 1961 - Mary and James

Christmas 1961 – Mary and James Doran

I love this photo because Mary and James look so happy, with their arms wrapped around each other. A simple Christmas tree decorated with old ornaments, tinsel, and candy canes still seems perfect to me. I have most of these decorations (thanks siblings!), including the angel and the crèche almost hidden away in the bottom of the picture. The crèche was made of cardboard, so it, like the angel, is bent and worse for wear. The crèche now sits at the bottom of our little Christmas tree. I can’t find where I put the angel last year.

Wordless Wednesday is a blogging prompt suggested by Geneabloggers. I always find it hard to do a wordless Wednesday blog posting. Maybe one day . . . .

May your holidays be merry and bright!
