Christmas 1915

[“Salesgirls’ Holiday Real Christmas Gift: Trying Season in Stores on Nerves and Muscles Ends with a Big Rush. A Big Year for Buying. ‘Shop Early’ Campaign Not Ineffective and Last Day’s Crush at Counters Has Been Worse.” The New York Times, December 25, 1915.]

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it.

And I thought we had it bad when I worked for the Postal Service!

Merry Christmas, Michael, Elaine and family. (Thank you for your card. I'm treasuring [is that a proper verb?] the envelope as much as the sentiment inside.)

Same to you. When I was a kid, I thought it meant that people boxed up presents and took them back to exchange. I wonder if I was duped by a joke on Ed Sullivan or something.
