Vintage postcard advent calendar - December 3rd

I'm very pleased (and slightly embarassed) to say that I have now fixed the glitch on the vintage postcards advent calendar so you should now all be able to see the current day's postcard and previous day's. Today's Christmas postcard is called 'The Village Christmas', published by Lonsdale and Bartholomew. It's not been posted so I have no idea of the date, but imagine that it's around the early 1900's. Apart from the word 'Christmas' on the card itself, it's not especially festive, unless the violin player and the geese have some sort of Christmas significance? Ah, hang-on, literally as I wrote the word 'geese' the penny dropped ... this is, I assume, 'six geese are laying' from the 12 days of Christmas.


As always, 100's more vintage postcards on my web site

  1. I'd bet my Christmas Goose it has something to do with the season!

  2. I like that its called the village choristers. I can only imagine what 6 noisy honking geese sound like. Great card.

  3. I wonder if there are cards for the other 11 days.

  4. @Joy, until you pointed it out I had always misread it as 'Village Christmas' rather than 'Village Choristers'. So perhaps this postcard has nothing to do with Christmas at all? Oh well, I'd better make the next one extra Christmassy.

  6. I can't imagine what that could sound like! Probably better not to try. :)
