They were fun to put up and looked rather magical, especially if you were a child. It's hard to believe they went out of fashion. Tell me, how long has it been since you saw one on an Xmas window? Twenty years? Thirty years?!
Far too long. Bring back Glass Wax stencils! That's an order.
With this post, I am done writing about Xmas. Time to move on. And not to New Year's, which is a completely meaningless holiday. Let's skip New Year's Day and jump directly into the January/February doldrums, where life is frozen and all sense of hope is abandoned. I love that time of year!
