>Merry Christmas: U.S. Brewers Foundation, 1953


“Looking Over the Christmas Cards” by Douglass Crockwell
U.S. Brewers Foundation, 1953

I love these vintage Christmas cards. Why does that woman in the foreground think that card is so funny? Well, at least she’s happy.

What we have here is a classic American Christmas scene: Nothing religious, nothing Christian, nothing that might offend, just pleasant times with beautiful people enjoying alcohol and a crackling fire. We know baby Jesus is somewhere in the recesses of their memory, but it doesn’t really mean that much to those who have finally overcome the need for Jesus. Right?
