I have been collecting the vintage Christmas postcards for nearly 20 years now. I have no idea how many pieces are in my collection. Each December I take them out, I admire them but after I carefully put them back to their metal box to avoid to get some damage.
Before the university I worked in a library, after the university I worked in the Archive of the Hungarian Radio so I can say that cataloguing is quite familiar to me.
Well, I have decided that each day I will take a picture of a Christmas-St. Nicolas/Santa postcard and I will show you here.
My first piece is a St. Nick card (Mikulás): Greetings from St.Nick
On this card St. Nick dressed in a classical or a traditional outfit: red robe, mitre, crook. He gives some biscuits and maybe an apple to the children.
The card dates from about 1930-40.
Tomorrow I come again!
You can find my other cards under the label: 'old Christmas cards'.
