Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from Me to You

***** Originally posted December 23, 2008 *****

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all the wonderful readers of my blog. I hope this holiday finds you safe and well, and in good cheer.

As many times as I've been to Disneyland growing up and as big of a fan that I am, you’d think there would be lots of photos of me at the park. My parents have dozens of photo albums from my childhood but there is only one photo of me at Disneyland.

Here is that one photo, me and my family at Disneyland - December 1970. My dad looking every bit the part of his job as Plumbers/Contractors Union Boss, my mom looking pretty hip considering she is only 25 and had to deal with me and my brother constantly trying to kill each other. My older brother is on the left and the silly little kid on the right is yours truly… Blame dad for the hair cut and mom for the clothes.

Werner Weiss’ great site “Yesterland” recently ran a fun vintage Disneyland Christmas update (link) where he posted this photo below. It looks like the same type of white Christmas tree as in my picture above. Thanks Werner!

Hey Tim, I was out of town for a few days so this is late, but thanks for all of the great posts, and I hope you have a great 2013!

Merry Christmas to you too.

Thank you for the photo of your youth. I have a photo of me with Pinocchio at almost that exact spot.

Best regards.
