The 1972 Sears Wish Book:

It's 8 days 'til Christmas, and in 1972 that was forever. Plus looking at all the stuff in the Wish Book made the wait seem twice as long.

...nothing more magical than laying on the floor in your pj's and looking through the Christmas Wish Book with your brother under the lights of the Christmas tree.

Everyone: I just loved spending hours and hours looking through the book, to drool over all the stuff I knew I was never gonna get..
