Christmas Greetings

Vintage Christmas card from 1910 or earlier featuring Saint Nicholas carrying a cut Christmas tree. Although this card was sent in America, it has a decidedly European-styled Santa Claus. His hooded cloak is reminiscent of a friar’s robes. And instead of fur trimming, the hood is trimmed with a holly garland.

Saint Nicholas is shown in a small frame underneath a large spray of holly leaves and berries. The leaves and berries are so lovely that I shared them in holly spray so you could add them to your own projects. I think the brown background makes everything a bit more interesting and really allows the green in the holly leaves to shine.

The card bears the simple greeting of Christmas Greetings.
