“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful” — Norman Vincent Peale.*
The beauty of the Christmas season has been captured on Christmas cards here and abroad for generations. Often regarded as works of art in miniature, many cards have been preserved so that future generations can cherish their images and messages of peace and goodwill.
MidPointe Library is proud to possess a collection of Christmas cards within its “Digital Archives.” The images, in color and black-and-white, date as far back as 1880.
