Christmas_1910Today’s post highlights another postcard from the Motter family collection.  Unfortunately, the postmark is not legible on the back side of the card.  Lucky for me, the sender actually dated the postcard!  The postcard is dated December 8, 1910.

The postcard is prominently decorated with mistletoe.  Beginning in the eighteenth century, mistletoe became a common Christmas decoration in many homes.  According to custom, a man and woman who meet under the mistletoe are obliged to kiss each other.   I wonder if this person is waiting for someone to share a kiss with under the mistletoe?
