jollification. hilarity. mirth. merriment. revelry.

jollification, sounds like a dirty word to me.  a word we never use, don't think i've ever heard anyone say it and yet it has such great meaning ....  a boisterous celebration, a merry festivity.   looks like santa can relate.  'tis the season to be jolly.   {check out santa's slippers}

cheers, santa.   vintage postcard, no kidding. 

remember these popcorn balls {mc calls 12/1962}

oh, this is a good one....  titled "Royal Roast"   my gosh, who were the food stylists back then and how the heck did anybody eat this stuff ....    even the desserts look awful.    still love these old magazines and ads, much entertainment.  {mc calls, dec. 1962}

oh yes, we all put holly berry on our turkey. {mc calls, dec. 1962}

and the nuts, wouldn't be the holidays without them.     what's that blue thing? a marble?

    this is eggnog pudding, oy vey.  it says, "one of the 56 easy, party-going desserts you can make only with minute tapioca"    i love that "party-going desserts" {mc calls, ages ago}  just what i want to take to a party ...  but to think there's 55 more, double oy vey!  

merriment.  coca cola ad. 

revelry, looks like rivalry.

never guess what this ad was for {mc calls, december 1962} ... "Bare up beautifully for holiday enchantment" what do you think they mean by "holiday enchantment", now that's a new one.  it says, spandex, etc... that keeps you neat where  bra and girdle meet. Sweet! { yes, they had the word sweet in there. } celebrate with ... that Formfit feeling, Confidante by Formfit.   makes me want to run out and buy one for only $8.95.   love these ads.   so fun.   hope you are enjoying your holiday season.
