10 Things 80s Kids Will Remember About Christmas!

Christmas in the 80s was just plain awesome. We had the best of everything, TV , toys, movies, music and a boat load of 80s Christmas cheer! Christmas just doesn’t seem the same these days, and even though I have kids of my own now, and it is quite magical which them around, it will never be quite the same as 80s Christmases!

1. Shopping At Woolworths
