    This is the only time Peppermint Patty writes to Santa Claus.

    Yep, safety first…and what a nice girl Patty to think of it…and it does not hurt to make sure you are on that nice list…maybe being closer to the top, huh ?

    Seems like she should be texting the message on her smart phone in this day and age. Besides, Santa would be more likely to get it in a timely fashion that way. NO! He doesn’t leave on his trip until the 24th. So he won’t need to read it while driving.

    From Peppermint Patty’s first Peanuts Christmas back in 1966.

    And I know Santa Claus’ sleigh always has a seat belt, and he must know all the safety precautions like all airline flights do.

    I’m just glad she didn’t ask for anything…super sweet.

    I don’t recall that seat belts were even THE LAW back then. The feeling was more that- if you’re smart, you wear them. If you don’t wear them, don’t say you weren’t warned. And did they have over the shoulders harness belts yet? I don’t recall them that far back.

    And ypoons7666 is right. We lose a lot as we progress. We mustn’t fool ourselves into thinking that technology is all gain. There is always a trade-off.

    Seat belts? Ah the good old days when Americans had options.

    Seat belts were not standard equipment until about 1965 in the US. They were never used by anybody but me and a few other geeks until the 1980s.

    I bought my first new car in 66, and had seat belts installed. They weren’t even optional on many (most?) cars. I got out of a ticket once because the Highway patrolman liked the fact that my kids were buckled up (I was only 6 mph over on an interstate).
