Default Griswold/Rinkwraith Contest Entry #2

Ah, Christmas time...what a nice time to sit back, dress up in some old clothes, and reflect on the joyous times that have been shared, right Clark?



Uh...right...um, Clark's a little busy now reminiscing about his childhood memories of Christmas, but now he wants to see yours too.

Entry #2 contest. Winner of this contest will be entered into the main page of the contest. Winner will be selected from all eligible entries by random.org.

Please post a photo of your old Christmas memories (you opening Christmas presents as a kid, older shots of the family, go old school here guys)

As I know this one has some technical scan and post issues, you have until Sunday 12/4 at 8pm as a deadline.

More motivation;
Added to the prize list today was one box of 10/11 Score and an update set

I don't have any pics of this particular Christmas handy but when I opened this on Christmas Morning 1986:



I danced the night away. I don't think I slept for two days!

I don't know why exactly, I guess it's some kind of little sister revenge, but, every year for Christmas, my mom gets my uncles a present that is more along the lines of a gag gift...I think that year the present they opened up contained three action figures that had to do with their childhood...idr...the photo is from 2007 I think...?

Christmas 1976 - That's me with the goofy smile and my two brothers. My youngest brother got a new gun that year Yep, back then we gave out guns to children for Christmas.

Hope the pic is ok and what you mean by old school. Been through a lot over the years. But here I am opening up a present. Probably when I was like 3. Some great pics so far. Love seeing them. Thanks for the contest!

If I get a chance to get some old Christmas pics from my mom scanned, I'll put one up. However, for now I'll just have to share a pic of one of my favorite toys I ever got from the big red man. After some time, the whole thing eventually broke, and I was left with nothing but the trash compactor monster.
