The War On Christmas Cards

While those who decry the 'War on Christmas' claim we're steadily erasing Jesus' role in the holiday, the reality is that diverse celebrations - including many secular traditions - have long been a part of America's winter traditions.

Looking at the designs of holiday cards from the 19th century to the present, it's clear that we've always sent season's greetings free from Christian overtones. In fact, the range of bizarre artwork goes far beyond the conventional seasonal tropes.
