5 Christmas Greetings from the 1910s

Christmas and the holidays are a time to be with family and showing a connection to those you love at the darkest time of the year. For those who can’t spend the holidays at home with us, we have a long tradition of sending cards, probably as long as the post office itself, For those who are traveling, or vacationing in Santa Cruz this holds true today the same that it did 100 years ago. Although we may be more inclined to post holiday greetings on a facebook wall today, 100 years ago cards and postcards were fresh, beautiful, and very much appreciated by Moms everywhere.
