Postcards share good cheer

It’s December and that means it’s time for Christmas and other holiday cards. The Vigo County Historical Society has a wonderful collection of such cards. The above 1910 postcard has Santa raising a toast. It reads, “Cast dull care away, for here's to Xmas day. Join the festive bowl, and be a jolly soul.”

What animal lover can resist this undated postcard wishing someone Merry Christmas in German? Don’t we all love howling dachshunds?

Ah, and what Scrooge didn’t open his door to these three carolers?
