Weird and Wonderful Holiday Cards

Thursday, December 10, 11am
Weird and wonderful holiday cards – some vintage, some foreign, some treacly sweet, some simply awful. After Sputnik was launched in 1957, the Soviet Union promoted holiday cards mixing images of space travel and Santa Claus to celebrate the holiday season. Join Joanna and Liana as they look through some of the oddest, funniest holiday greetings ever imagined. If you need assistance setting up Zoom, contact techsupport@myrml.org. Co-Sponsored with the Rogers Memorial Library.
