A Merry Christmas—Let Every Heart in Christmas Customs Bear Its Part

A Merry Christmas—Let Every Heart in Christmas Customs Bear Its Part
A small Victorian-era Christmas card featuring a fairy and flowers.

The verse on the card appears in J. S. Ogilvie, compiler, The Album Writer's Friend: Comprising More Than Three Hundred Choice Selections of Poetry and Prose, Suitable for Writing in Autograph Albums, Valentines, Birthday, Christmas, and New Year Cards (1881), p. 60.

A Merry Christmas

Christmas comes, let every heart
In Christmas customs bear its part:
The old be young, the sad be gay
And smiles chase every care away.

Smiley Derleth, Thomas Heizmann, Deborah Lundbech, Aschi "Freestone" have particularly liked this photo
