~ Victorian Christmas Cards ~

I have always had a fascination for antique postcards ~
any holiday...but the Christmas ones are quite strange indeed.

From their morbidity, to the just plain strange!

here are a few that have made me say...

I mean, 
creepy walking root-vegetable men?

or how about a kidnapping santa?

this one cracks me up - just look at their little legs!

a little too much eggnog perhaps?

and doesn't a cat-fight outside a tenement window just scream Happy Christmastide?

or would you prefer a gang of torch-carrying birds to lighten your way?

I especially adore the Krampus character, being that I love Halloween so very much ~
 he scared the H E double-hockey-sticks outta me as a child though!

this one stumps me:

ever heard of the Yule Goat?

or perhaps sled-riding, well dressed chickens?

I do prefer the plain old, 
creepy guy that we have all come to love the best though

Blessings from the Farm
