Dear Santa:


December, that month with christmas lights on in every street, cold noses, happy and excited children everywhere... December, that month when everybody become mad! 

Everybody is freaking out for find the better gift, everybody is looking for the ideal present, everybody is crazy checking out every store, every showcase... Oh, please... Keep calm! 
It isn't Christmas yet! 


But, all childrens  have already in mind their letter to Santa, their favourite toy, they favourite doll, their favourite book... (and yep, of course they have in mind videogames too...). If you know a child, if you have little brothers or sons, you can enjoy their magic in Christmas time: Their hope, their happiness, the bright in their eyes... And if you haven't brothers or childrens at home, don't worry: There are so many children waiting for in streets, with their noses glued on showcases, playing and shouting because...
Christmas is here.

NYC 1947 & Christmas madness! 

The photo's original 1947 caption: 
"With Christmas less than a month away, these early birds stand in front of a Yuletide display in a downtown department store. New Yorkers have been warned to do their shopping early and apparently they are heeding the warning."

Well, it's OK. She isn't me...

  1. jajajaja bueno me temo que con tu descripción ¡soy un chiquillo más! precisamente acabo de venir de dar una vuelta,y me he tirado media hora de reloj embobada viendo un escaparate de una juguetería, que es como las que muestras en tus fotos, con casitas de muñecas, adorables osos de peluche, trenecitos, muñequitas de porcelana, soldaditos etc...en fin una joya!
    Feel like Sophia Loren in Rome :D

    1. Eres de las mías. ¡A mi me tienen que despegar de los escaparates con espátula! jajajajaja Pero es que hay cada cosa tan bonita... Es imposible no pararse a mirar más detenidamente.

  2. Qué fotos tan entrañables... Tienen más encanto las de aquella época que cualquier fotografía de ahora, en mi opinión.

    1. La verdad es que yo pienso lo mismo, pero hay escenas de ahora que nada tienen que envidiarle a éstas de aquí.

    2. Hombre ya, hay excepciones pero a mí me gustan más las antiguas porque tienen el encanto de mostrarnos cómo han cambiado ciertas cosas (la moda, las calles, las personas...).
