Advent Calendar - December 4 - Christmas Cards

My family didn’t send many Christmas cards—probably only to a few relatives and perhaps friends who lived out of state. Those we received were displayed by taping them to the wall as seen in this photo:

Thanks to my mother keeping things in my baby book, I have two Christmas cards that I received on my first Christmas (not sure they qualify as heirlooms!):
From my Sissie

From Aunt Joyce

In my younger years, I spent Thanksgiving weekend hand-addressing the envelopes to send Christmas cards to family and friends and mailed them out on December 1st. Every year now I think about sending Christmas cards, perhaps even buy some, and maybe get some mailed. In fact, it’s something I think I might work on this week!
