Did your family send cards? Did your family display the ones they received? Do you still send Christmas cards? Do you have any cards from your ancestors?
I almost skipped this day, because my family was never much for sending out Christmas cards. My mother has always been a school teacher and there just wasn't enough time for composing those Christmas letters and addressing cards. Also, as my Mom herself is first to admit, she was never much into letter writing!
But as I was sorting through a scrapbook I happened upon a publication sent in December, 1961 by People's Federal Bank in Wooster, Ohio. It was full of various things (apparently my grandmother or grandfather saved it for a house plan it contained) and there was a whole spread detailing the history of Christmas cards so I thought I'd share that for today. Also, the cover was very cute!
