This old postcard says it well:
Best Wishes for Christmas
To all the good and friendly foks
Who in your house abide,
The folks who live at our house wish
A Merry Christmas-tide.
The back says it pretty well too!
How are you all? We are well. How do you like this weather? There is quite a lot of sickness here. Wishing you a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!
Asa & Muriel
Along with Asa and Muriel, I'm wishing all my blogger friends a very Merry Christmas!
