Christmas 18

Merry Christmas

Christmas 19

Inside greeting


The days of little greeting cards are really over, as our modern mail processing machines don’t know how to handle them. But back when mail was hand sorted, small cards were common and charming. This particular card is about 3×4 and is a fold-over type that makes it look like a closed envelope. The front image shows a cozy fireplace, easy chair and spinning wheel. The inside greeting is equally sentimental:

Before the cheery Yulelog’s flame

May all your worries melt away

And only happiness remain

To light your heart on Christmas Day!

The card was signed “From the Goddard Family” but no other information about who received it or from whence it came. It is an appropriate card for today, Christmas day. I hope this finds you warm and snug, with friends and family surrounding you to share the joy of the holiday.
