Christmas Postcards: Detroit 1911

It is Christmas Eve in Thailand (we are 12 hours ahead of the Central Time Zone in the U.S.) and I just finished putting together a lengthy article about Santa Claus’s Christmas Eve journey around the world for my A Stamp A Day blog. Please have a look if you are interested.

I still have a few Christmas-related postcards I would like to share during this holiday season. I really like the vintage cards, although I don’t have very many of them. This card was mailed after midnight on December 21, 1911, traveling from Detroit, Michigan, to St. Louis, Missouri. The message reads:

Dear Mother,
I wish you many Happy returns of the day.
With love,

It seems somewhat formal for a Christmas card to one’s mother. The picture side features a Madonna and Child image along with the simple inscription, “A Merry Christmas”.
