Are you Modern or Nostalgic?

I am a nostalgic type of person. I am sentimental over everything!!
I can smell certain smells and it immediately carry me back 30 years ago!
I love nostalgic/old fashioned type of ornaments, Christmas cards, and music. A lot of my friends and my stepmom are more modern with their tastes. How about you? Are you modern or nostalgic??

I'm a bit of both, but I can be more Nostalgic.

I'd have to say that I'm nostalgic.

I am more modern, but I am very into creating and maintaining traditions. I suppose it is due to the current stage in life I am experiencing.

I am probably split down the middle between the two. I love my family's traditional meals and activities and decorations and such, but now that I'm a little older I like to add new things in all the time. Especially the decorations. I've been adding hallmark ornaments like crazy the last few years (specifically Peanuts ones).

I am a little of both...I love my vintage ornaments as well as modern ones like Mickey and various cartoon characters that my daughter also loves. So yeah a bit of each. But I have been on the hunt for quite sometime now for lots of vintage Christmas decor. And I totally agree with you about how certain things can take you back. My mom used to put up stikees every year on the windows...and I hadn't seen these in years. But I found the company online and now get their catalog. I got some that are just like the ones I grew up with as a kid and they still smell the same...*L* I also love the popcorn plaques (we had these too) and hope to order some this or next year.
