Christmas comes in different colors and sizes and in San Pedro it is no exception. This flashback photo takes us back at least fifty years when San Pedro was at its peak of progress in the lobster exporting business. In a sense there was affluence in the community. A few still used a branch of a cypress tree for a Christmas tree but the more prosperous had artificial trees. And there were large toys to symbolize grandeur. Dolls were so large, that they were almost the actual size of a human baby. Dolls could walk, say “mama”, cry, drink a bottle or even wet their diapers. Quite likely Aida Ruth Nunez’s doll could do all of these and probably walked as fast as her little brother Luis. Indeed even the black and white photo takes us back to the 1960’s. Christmas flashbacks are always memorable.
