Merry Christmas!

Today's memory is a 1950's decade oversize Christmas card that reads "Merry Christmas to a Fine Big Boy". I pulled this from the box and was happily surprised when I turned it over and saw that it was addressed to my husband, "Billy". Santa looks so happy in this card, but the elves are a little scary. Love the bright colors and the size of the card. Merry Christmas to everyone.
