Christmas is a Gift from Woolworths


For me, especially when I was growing up, “Christmas is a Gift as Woolworths”, was a very true statement. We went to Woolworths almost weekly. Sometimes as a family and other times when my Grandmother would just take me for an ice cream cone. When I was in college and wanted a treat on a budget, I would head down to the Woolworths’ counter and plunk down a few bucks for a pretty square meal and a Coke. I was really sad when I they started closing these institutions and when I see a shuttered one it makes me a list wistful.

Then I think back to all the great memories I had there or I view one of these old Christmas commercials and my nostalgia goes from sad to happy. Hopefully it will do the same for you.
