Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories 2013 - Christmas Cards
Christmas Cards were always welcomed at our home. Sometimes they would be put on a table or on a television, or perhaps posted on the wall and sometimes on an iron Christmas tree for showing cards. My mother sent many cards to family and friends. She had a Christmas Card book that had the addresses with a place for check marks for those sent and received. It was interesting to see the changes of address as people moved or were married. It was sad to see a name stroked out due to their passing.
I have kept some special cards that I received over the years.
I look forward to receiving cards, especially where a Christmas letter is enclosed. I still need to make my list for this year.
Here is a Christmas card that my father sent to his parents when he was in Italy during the 2nd World War.
