Typically, I don’t time travel in order to wish people a Merry Christmas from decades of holidays past but the image and video that I located were just too much fun to not share.
I graduated from high school, attended college and became an “adult” in the 80’s. At the time I couldn’t stand the fashion, most of the music or the politics. But now, looking back, it seems like a gentler time.
Or maybe that’s just from wearing glasses that 20-30 years older.
But don’t worry – I’ve got another Merry Christmas post for you tomorrow.
I don’t know about you, but I think this photo shows how much fun the White House Christmas party was in 1983. Any time I need a good laugh I just think about Nancy Reagan sitting on Mr. T’s lap. This photo would make a great holiday card.
A holiday song from Run DMC – Christmas in Hollis.
Christmas Vacation: Aunt Bethany Says Grace – This one just barely squeaked by because the movie came out in 1989 but I think the Vacation movies say 80’s regardless. And this is a funny clip.
