Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, be plenteous in mercy is to have the real spirit of Christmas. Calvin Coolidge.

Victorian Christmas Cards

What do you think about Victorian Christmas cards?
Are they better than modern ones?
Which card would you like to get and why?


  1. I like these cards, they are nice. I can't say that they are better or worse than modern ones, but I think they are a bit more naive and sincere. I'd be glad to get any card, which will be given not formaly, but from the bottom of one's heart. It doesn't matter what's depicted on this card, anyway it will be very pleasant to get it.

  2. These Victorian cards are very spruce. I like them. They make feel that Christmas is coming. To my mind, Victorian cards are better and more festive. So, they are more suitable for congratulatings. And I like all of these cards but I'd like to get the one with Santa Clause in a green hat or the one with a big Christmas tree. I can't say why, they just the most memorable.

  3. I like this Victorian cards more than modern one`s. I think they are so touching. They look very unusual and I try to find some cards like these to give them to my friends for Christmas. They capture the spirit of Christmas and make ​​me feel like a kid. As for me, I like a card with a picture of Santa Clause. He looks so real in it)

  4. I like such cards very much. I think they possess the certain Christmas spirit. As I know Victorian Christmas cards were varied in size, shape and material. Moreover, they were made with silk fringe, lace, satin, sachets, tinsel, feathers, fold-outs, pop-outs, and pull tabs for animation.Victorian Christmas cards featured cherubs, flowers, animals, and images of spring, and pretty children. In fact these cards are touching and very beautiful. For me, to have any of these wonderful cards would be a really nice present.
