The present was as big as me!  And no one remembers what the gift was!

Christmas 1980

1980 – Facts about Me

  • I was living in Worms, Germany.
  • My mom bought the pajamas for me because they were red and white and Christmas-y.
  • We had a live Christmas tree (that was soon to be the last year we ever had a live Christmas tree because I kept stepping on the needles and screaming bloody murder.)
  • I got my very own rocking chair as a gift that Christmas.
  • I was still an only child at this point.

1980 – It happened this year in history

  • February 14:  Walter Cronkite announces his retirement from CBS Evening News in February.
  • April 29: Alfred Hitchcock, the British film director who pioneered many techniques in the suspense and thriller genres, died.  His movie Rebecca won an Academy Award for Best picture in 1940.

    I was 2 1/2! 1980 is too early for a Cabbage Patch Kid or I’d guess that. I’ll try to remember to ask my mom what I got for Christmas when I was 2. Maybe that will help solve the mystery!

      Yeah, I think I got my first cabbage patch kid when I was in 1st or 2nd grade 😀 I have a picture somewhere of the moment 😀
