Old but Good: Timetravel Christmas in the 1930s

95_tt_back-in-time-1I adore sims played in other time periods – that is probably just me being a history buff, but I don’t care if it is a 1950s game or a nerolicic one. I just found this old article that will take you back to the 1930s and celebrate an art deco modern christmas.

Who is she? Her name is Maron.
