The Sears Christmas Toy Catalog Was A Childhood Tradition In My Home   When I was a child receiving the Sears Christmas Toy Catalog, was as much of a tradition in my home as Mom's apple pie.   Every year when the north winds started to blow towards my Virginia home, we would search the mailbox daily in hopes that the Sears Christmas Toy Catalog had arrived.

We wore the catalog out by the time Christmas arrived. How exciting it was to find the toy I picked out waiting for me under the tree on Christmas morning. I can remember those magical feelings of joy like it were yesterday.    Let's ke...
