I remember my parents receiving Christmas cards from friends, in the 1950s, who had just had a kid.  That new arrival and his or her siblings were often crowded in front of an equally important new arrival--the television set.  My parents did that with me and my sister, in fact.

Not sure how accurate claim is, but here it is. Grinch would be little smaller.

I seem to remember Costco selling the new flat screen TVs at near that cost when they first came out.

Time, innovation, and the free market, brought that cost down.

Like this?  That's me, just arrived.  Neither my mom or I had red hair, that's just a film aging thing.  My dad spent his reenlistment bonus on a brand spanking new TV.
