Christmas post cards – greetings from the past

with 8 comments

I’ve sent almost all of my Christmas cards.  They are pretty to send, and I love to receive them in return.

But I also love the examples of greetings from Christmas past, my small collection of Christmas post cards.

So, no matter who they were originally intended for, here are some Christmas wishes for you, from years gone by…

From little Rose Marie…

From cousin Virginia…

From 1913…  (the back of this one says, in part… ‘don’t forget that rabbit stew we are all to have when one of you chaps snares one.’)


In 1912…


And from Uncle and Auntie…

Merry Christmas, everyone!

  2. Its lovely to think that they didn’t end up in the garbage. I like the rabbit stew message from 1913…

    • Hi. Sometimes the messages tell quite a story, and give a glimpse into the ways of people in those days. Jane

  3. The old cards are great! It’s fun to see them-and I hope that the post card recipient eventually snared a rabbit so they could have rabbit stew. 🙂

    • Hi. They are fun to look at. One thing, post cards weren’t very private… the post master must have read them all! Jane
