Brings back lots of memories. One correction, these are not Christmas cards but New Year's cards. The Russian version of the Santa Claus called Ded Moroz (trans. Granpa Frost) is more closely associated with New Year's Eve (hence Ded Moroze holding a clock on the last postcard). The Russian's celebrate Christmas in January. Also, the young lady you see is his helper granddaughter.

Happy Holidays!

Thanks for the correction. I saw Santa so prevalent and fell right into Christmas.
