Looking Back: 30s and 40s Christmas cards

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

These Christmas greeting cards were probably sent to a local family in the 1930s and 40s.  There are no dates to indicate when they were mailed. Some are the shape ornaments to used on the  Christmas tree. A couple are on aluminum foil. Two have Christmas stories by Phillips Brooks and John Greenleaf Whittier.

Here’s hoping that your Christmas is as Happy as can be And you find everything you want beneath your Christmas tree!
