I love the holidays. I mean, who doesn't? I love the string of twinkling lights running down main street, the 24-hour Christmas music on the radio all season long, and the joy I feel when I shop for the ones I love. Besides the television and emails screaming at me to check out the stores' 'Super Sales', 'Black Friday' sales, 'Cyber Monday' sales, I do receive a large amount of postcards in the mail advertising products or wishing my family a happy holiday.
One of the main functions of a postcard is to advertise a product, and what better way to sell Christmas, then selling though postcards. Here are a few examples I found at the Curt Teich Postcard Archives.
