Fresh fruit for Christmas

Christmas gifts of fresh and dried fruit have been common in the United States for decades. These are some early magazine advertisements for fresh fruit gifts.

This ad is from the mid 1920's.

This ad is from the 1938. Most stores only has seasonal fresh fruit so something as simple as pears was a real luxury.

This basket advertisement is from 1948 and reflects post-war prosperity.

Christmas with Archie and the Gang

classic Bugs Bunny comic book covers

I remember reading Bugs Bunny comic books when I was a kid and I do remember liking the Christmas comics, not just Bugs but Archies, Richie Rich and the other classics. These are some early Bugs Bunny Christmas issues, I hope they bring back good memories.
