Feel good story of the day: a step back in time

Have to admit slim pickings out there today on feel-good stories. Either that or I’m looking in the wrong places 😦 Or maybe the bar is just too high after yesterday’s story.

From The Virginian-Pilot:

Christmas these days involves lots of fussy preparations and overspending on overpriced gadgets. But if we went back in time, way back to the early 1600s, we’d find no tech-savvy gifts, no decorated trees and certainly no neighborhood light displays to rival Vegas.

This story just makes me grateful that I’m not living in the early 1600s 🙂 No gadgets? No way 😆
