I am not a fan of the over-commercialization of modern day Christmas with its emphasis on shopping and gifts. However my search for Merry Christmas cards to send to family and friends has brought back fond memories of simpler times. I have narrowed my choices to these five designs due to the warm fuzzy feelings they have evoked from years gone by…
Holy Infant Christmas Card reminds me of the true meaning of the holiday- the birth of Jesus Christ. As a 3rd grader in Sunday school, I was chosen to be the narrator in the church Christmas play. Dressed as the Star of Bethlehem, I recited the story of Jesus’ birth from verses memorized from the Bible.
Candlelit Merry Christmas Tree is an enchanting fir tree decorated with glowing candles, glimmering silvery ornaments, pine cones and red berries set against a beautiful star- filled night sky. Its peaceful feeling makes me feel the beauty of this captivating season.
Christmas Cookies Holiday Card brings back the delicious sugary smells emanating from Mom’s kitchen when she was baking the holiday cookies. She would let me stir the batter, spread the frosting, and add the red and green sprinkles once the cookies were cooled.
Country Bridge Christmas Card recalls many trips to ski country growing up in New England over Christmas school vacations. The snow was pristine, the distant landscape mountainous and the ride through the New Hampshire wooden bridge was bumpy and loud.
Cupcake Christmas Card is the ultimate best present ever! A tree that grows cupcakes surrounded by swirling snowflakes and peppermint candies. What more could my sweet tooth ask for- yum!
