I've posted this before though this is a different version. It's a childhood memory. My mother would take my sister and I into Boston so she could do Christmas shopping. There were no malls around here at the time and Boston was where the major department stores were. For us, my sister and I, taking the trains and buses was an adventure. I 'm sure as the day progressed my sister and I were not the most pleasant creatures to be around but my mother persevered and as a bonus we got to see the Enchanted Village at Jordan Marsh a New England department store chain that had been around since around 1840's. It was swallowed up by Macy's in 1996. Anyway every year Jordan's would set up The Enchanted Village. A series of scenes with automated figures. We loved it. After Jordan Marsh disappeared the display was shuffled around town until it disappeared. Then a local furniture store, Jordan's Furniture, no relation to Jordan Marsh, purchased and refurbished the display and began setting it up in one of their stores. Arlene and I went in 2013 and enjoyed this childhood memory once again.
So to all my blogging friends a Merry Christmas, happy holidays, whatever you celebrate. I thank you for your support. I'm outta here.
