Today I wondered what kind of Christmas cards Miss Marple would have chosen to send to her friends and family.
Perhaps she would have liked this vintage card- steeped in English Christmastime tradition and a charming portrayal of the stirring of the Christmas Pudding on the last Saturday before Advent.
In England, a pudding is not like the American custard dessert. Christmas Pudding is closely related to a fruitcake. It is famously described in Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
One thought on “Christmas Traditions”
Very few still send actual cards anymore- I’m always sad at how few come to me in the mail. I get a few photo cards (sadly with no personalized message), and a few cards from “old timers”, but I get less and less each year…. I still take time to pick out ones that I feel represent me, my family or at least my style. I like to think that just by seeing the card the recipient will know it is from me without even reading my personalized message inside. ♥
