My Old Christmas VHS Tapes, From The 1990s, On DVD

My husband digitized my old Christmas VHS tapes back when we were dating to preserve the memories of both mine and his childhood. Isn’t it funny how everything always seems better from your childhood when you revisit it? Even the old commercials we enjoy!

In many ways these recorded movies (one of which is very hard to find and purchase) are a timecapsule that we are sharing with our daughter; giving her a glimpse at what it was like to be her age back when we were growing up in the 1990s. The best thing about having these movies in a watchable format for the 21st century is that she may grow to appreciate the technology we have now.
