Postal Greetings

Tucked among my keepsakes of old letters and photographs, I came across this Christmas postcard, sent to my great grandmother eighty-two years ago. I love this picture: a cottage tucked cozily among the snow-covered hills with flowered sprigs and colorful birds as its accent. The script on the back is flowing and graceful; the sentiments short, yet sincere.

May this Christmas Season bring you lasting happiness, and may the skies of the New Year be filled with promise, peace and hope.

Merry Christmas!

I love old stuff like this! I hope there is much old fashioned joy in your house and heart today.

Merry Christmas!

This card is a treasure!

Two things grabbed my attention, no box number or zip code and the use of Xmas instead of Christmas. I didn't realize the use of Xmas went back that far.
