DescriptionChristmas Postcard
Historical ArticleReturning home from the forest on the night before Christmas with a pine tree are two warmly dressed German children in a golden sleigh.

The pony's collar is studded with sleigh bells and shafts of the sleigh hold a lantern on one side and clappered bell on the other.

A golden moon floods the snowy scene with light and reveals the spire of a country church and cottage, both half buried in snow.

Ein frohes Weihnachsfest is the holiday greeting on the old post card received in Kansas City in 1907. In other words, A Merry Christmas.
