~MERRY CHRISTMAS!!~ Vintage Christmas Cards
I thought you might enjoy seeing a few early Christmas post cards and folded cards. Let's remember a simpler time, when there were no "politically correct" concerns.
People didn't really develope that custom of giving Christmas cards until the early 1900's. Did you notice that the Santa does not look the way we expect him to in the USA? Our modern conception of the red suited Santa can be attributed to advertising by the Coca-Cola company.
If you're interested in learning more, you might like to read History of Early Post Cards.
