Christmas Cards - 2 December 2014 Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories

Christmas Cards. I love them. I save them all. And I love sending them even if there have been years when I just ran out of time and didn't have the time to send any.

When I was a kid, my mother made a nice "book" to me. She pasted nice looking postcards in it and I liked to look at those cards. There are cards of cute kittens, postcards of cities and of course Christmas cards.

One of my favorite is sent from Estonia, from a friend of my grandmother. It is the bear Misha who was the mascot of the 1980 summer olympics in Moscow, in the former Soviet union. He is standing there next to a Christmas tree decorating it.

Another card I have in this book is by Jenny Nyström (1846 - 1954), very famous in Sweden for her Christmas themed art.
