Daily Ideas from Your Ancestors For Christmas - 24 - Send Plenty of Greetings!


Indulge in the Custom of Cards !


‘CHRISTMAS CARDS – Judging from the displays in the stationers’ windows, there does not appear to be the slightest falling off in the demand for Christmas cards, and they are there an endless variety. The interchange of friendly greetings through the medium of the prettily-designed cards is a custom that will not readily fall into disuse, at least not so long as it is encouraged by the production of cards of real artistic excellence at a nominal figure.’
