Christmas letter from 1915

What would a 7 year old kid in 1915 want from santa?

Christmas Wish List From 1915 Will Make You Feel Materialistic | ABC News Blogs - Yahoo

Makes you think twice of what to ask for Christmas this year?

I like what the dad said to his 7 yo daughter when she asked for $1,000 for a gift. LOL!

I don't remembered writing letters to Santa Clause when I first enter mainstream elementary school. I still got the presents under the Christmas tree. I wonder if Santa Clause could have read my mind like Telepath. That must be magic.

Fascinating... thanks for sharing.

1915 is when WWI broke out for a year in Europe and before America entered the war.

The preservation of who each one of is as an individual is now a reality.

In the end there may be a headstone and a body in the ground or an urn with who knows whose ashes in it and a garage sale and that is the norm.

The possibility now is to leave a genuine autobiography in a memory storage of some kind, a thumb drive whatever. Your voice as a child as a teenager as an adult, thousands of pictures, medical, school, and military records. A record of every holiday and who was there...

Right now basically for most of us in three generations just about everything about us as an individual is gone, gone forever.

That no longer has to be.

What's fascinating is that at 7 years old, he was able to write in cursive.

How is that unusual? Isn't that the average age for cursive learning?

That neat already? Most kids that age are just learning. What I meant that his penmanship was already well formed.

This was in 1915 , so maybe kids spend more time learning penmanship then.

Would be. I wonder if back then parents wrote letter for kids or if kids did it themselves.

Kids could write their own letters back then. They had more practice.

No I don't mean the parts they clipped, but the whole thing.

I'll kick my daughter off my laptop and post it in the general. The dad is soooo funny. I posted it on FB last week.
