Homemade Christmas cards in the early 1900s
Although there is nothing in my mother's written recollections about making Christmas cards, it certainly happened. as I have seen a number of examples.
This 1914, World War One, hand-made Christmas card is so poignant as to merit a place here. The original is held in the family of Anne Davey.
At the time postage was cheap in real terms as it was the only realistic means that ordinary people had to communicate. Most Christmas cards would have been made by children and hand-delivered to families and friends living in the same area.
