December 25 Christmas Day

I thought the handwritten message on the back of this Christmas postcard was very strange--until I discovered that it was part of a toast that appeared in some early 20th century books:
Compel me not to toe the mark,
Be ever prim and true,
But rather let me do those things
That I ought not to do.

It's Christmas Day!
Merry Christmas!
