What did Santa bring you in the 1980s? I know there are some young 'uns out there who follow my blog that were still getting things in their stocking from Santa in the 80s. What were your favorite toys?
Since I was too old for most toys, I am pretty sure that through most of the 80s I was getting things like black rubber bracelets (aka Madonna)as stocking stuffers. I think once I may have gotten that white and black "CHOOSE LIFE" T-shirt inspired by WHAM. I got colored tights. I remember getting "Love's Baby Soft" and some "Jean Nate" after bath splash. There was lots of lipgloss. LOTS. I got a new marvel of technology one year - a disc camera. That was a very, very good Christmas. The camera, however, was not so good.
What did you get? Were you a teen, like me, or were you a little pipsqueak during our favorite decade? Were you playing with Smurf toys, or Rainbow Brite, or the 'real' original transformers?
Its funny how nostalgic the holidays make us. Is it just me, or do you run through all the past Christmases in your mind, recalling what you got, and how it made you feel? Tell me about your best 80s holiday memories.
