It’s that time of year again! Flowers are blooming, the sun is shinning, and the weather is warming up! Springtime is finally here! Spring is a wonderful time for so many reasons. It means summer is not far behind, as well as fun activities. Spring also means Easter is coming.

Surely, everyone has fond memories of enjoying Easter with their family during this time of year! Easter meant picking out a springtime outfit for the special day, as well as spending quality family time around the dining room table filled with delicious treats, such as a gigantic honey baked ham! Each year, looking forward to seeing the whole family at Easter. Also, enjoying running around the backyard excitedly searching for eggs filled with sweets!

As we grow older, these holiday family dinners still have a special place in our hearts! Although times have changed and we all seem to be even more busy then before, Easter is still a special event to make time for! A time to have everyone together under one roof to create lifelong memories!

Some Things Never Change

1950sThis past Sunday, many of you celebrated Easter. At Scott’s Liquid Gold, we also celebrated our 59th anniversary. Many things have changed in the last 59 years.

Let’s take a brief look at what life was like in 1951. The United states was involved in the Korean War. McCall’s Magazine for women published their first issue. The Red Skelton Show aired and the first tests of color television were commercials broadcast from the Empire State Building. Ford was developing a new car that would later be known as the Thunderbird. Gas to fill the tank cost 19 cents a gallon.  The average family income was $3,700 and  the average cost of a new home was $9,000.  Unemployment was a a mere 3.3%.

Yes, much has changed since 1951 but not Scott’s Liquid Gold. We are still one of America’s best known household products. Tried and true, we’ll be around to care for your home furnishings long after many others have come and gone.
