Vintage Christmas Monday - An Old-fashioned Christmas

These postcards were printed in Germany and published by Fredrik Peterson of Boston around 1910. The greeting "Lycklig Jul" is in Swedish.

The last postcard has this message:

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We got home alright Friday night but was pretty near froze to death. The boys are shaking the table so I can hardly write. I have just finished writing a letter to my cousin. I just had a long letter from her. My I am glad because we don't have to go to school now for two weeks.

I'm participating in
Vintage Christmas Mondays.

Also see my December
Vintage Thingies Thursdays posts for more vintage Christmas stuff.


  1. Those postcards are so beautiful, and definitely show a simpler time, don't they?! The writing on that one is pretty funny too!
    Happy VCM and Merry Christmas!
