Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat.
These ads are from newspapers in Fort Collins’ past.
I’ve flipped through a couple of old newspapers, clipping out old Christmas ads from December 22, 1916 (Fort Collins Weekley Courier) and December 18, 1922 (Fort Collins Courier). (I didn’t pick these dates for any particular reason. I just happened upon them and they had some great ads to share.)
All of the following ads were accessed via Colorado Historic Newspapers.
I hope that you have a wonderfully relaxing holiday. And if you’re getting together with family, I’d like to encourage you to spend some time talking about the “old days.” If you’re on the younger side, then grab a pen and paper and write down the stories of your parents or grandparents. And if you’re on the wiser side, then take this opportunity to tell your kids and grandkids what life was like when you were young. Every family is rich with history and holidays are a great time to capture some of that on paper or in film.
