Christmas Countdown: Hershey’s 1982 Holiday Gift Catalog!

CC_Hershey's 1982 Holiday Catalog - TITLE PLATEMerry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone!  It’s December 25th – Christmas Day – so I wanted to share something a bit different and hopefully a bit special with you.

For today’s topic, I picked my Hershey Holiday Gift catalog from 1982, as it’s filled with all sorts of neat Hershey-themed holiday gift ideas as well as a good bit of actual candy.   The photos are pretty fantastic and you can check out the whole thing after the jump.

I’ve got a full day of family fun ahead of me, so without further comment here is Hershey’s Chocolate World Holiday Gift Catalog from 1982:
