Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

What is it Wednesday - Christmas Shows

Today I learned of the passing of Andy Williams.  I remember watching all of his Christmas specials with my family growing up.  This made me think of all the other great Christmas programs that came on once a year, like White Christmas, Bob Hope Specials, Charlie Brown, Frosty and more. Watching all of these great programs as a family was part of our Christmas, with popcorn sitting on the flooring and not wanting any of them to end.  Sad to think back and remember all the good times and how the family fun is not part of TV watching anymore.  This was a time of saying "Merry Christmas" and not  worrying about not being PC correct.  The magic that was part of my growing up is gone, but I can hope that this will change someday.  All I can do is keep it going for my family!  What was your favorite Christmas program growing up?

You hit the nail right on the head Rose. I too miss traditional Christmas. I remember watching Bob Hope and even listened to Andy Williams songs. We can always hope and pray.
