SEASONS GREETINGS LUCY FANS

"I'm also withdrawing the 20 dollars in my Christmas Club."

 

Before easy credit when people actually had to have the money BEFORE they bought something, a bank sponsored a "christmas club" consisted of you putting money in a special account so you had money to spend come Christmas time.

"Lucy Misplaces $2000" aired in November so Lucy Carmichael didn't have much for Christmas spending anyway. Adjusted for inflation her $20 would be $140 today and the title of the episode would be "Lucy Misplaces $14,000".
