Free Vintage Santa Claus Christmas Cards

Santa Claus of old had a tendency to be a bit more serious than he is today. And apparently he sometimes wore blue pants, or a blue or green coat (depending on the region, I presume), because that’s they way he’s depicted in some of the vintage Christmas cards below.

  1. Father Christmas traditionaly wore green, blue or purple. Without mentioning any names, it was a famous soft drinks company who first depicted him in red. And that’s the way he stayed!

  2. And thus began the commercialization of Christmas!

    Thanks for sharing that info, Rachel. I had no idea that’s why his suit color changed.

  3. I like your Santa cards…how can I get them? Thanks, D

  4. Hi, D’Ana.

    The cards are available as free downloads, subject to the “Rules of the Road” in the right sidebar. To get a card, just double-click on one of the card images on this page to make a larger version appear. If you’re using a PC you can then save the image to your hard drive by right-clicking your mouse. I’m not sure how you do it with a Mac.

    I hope that was what you were asking. If not, let me know.
