We live in a fast, modern and immediate world which is totally removed from the years of my childhood. What was a treat back then is very much a potentially common occurrence now which rather defeats the object to being a treat!
When I was a child Mum used to buy chocolate tree ornaments which I wasn’t allowed to consume until Christmas Eve and even then, just one or perhaps two. Now with my own home I could have a tree littered with Christmas chocolate ornaments but don’t. I no longer find that a treat.
The focus of Christmas has changed, what was important to me during my childhood is very different to the importance of now. In fact in some cases the important factors are not visible and tangible objects.
Overtime, our treats change, defined by us and our families. How have your treats changed over the years?
