Christmastime is almost here, bringing the looming deadline for holiday shopping closer each day. With all the lists and wrapping, rollbacks and Black Friday deals, it can be easy to forget your holiday cheer in the checkout line. When we’re always looking forward to the next big sale, we forget why we’re buying all these gifts in the first place.

To help get us in a festive mood and give us all a little lesson on Christmas’ past, Toy Insider Mom Laurie Schacht joined the History Channel to show what holiday shopping was like in the 1960s.

While the toys sure are different and the Internet has entirely changed the way we shop, the feeling of seeing a child open their favorite gift will always be the same. Holiday magic never goes out of style!

Join the History Channel and Toy Insider Mom while they unveil the magic of the holidays, one decade at a time.
