These Christmas post cards are from my great grandmother Hanna’s collection

This next post card has the traditional Swedish Christmas hymn, “We Greet Thee Beautiful Morning”, sung in Lutheran Churches, or at least it used to be sung 100 years ago.

Hail, blessed morn! Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion; for behold, I come to 
dwell in you, says the Lord

 

This next one was sent from family in Sweden to my great grandmother in the US.

The angel with star post card was sent in 1905 from Sweden to my grandmother in California, who would have been 9 at the time.

The next two postcards were sent in 1914 from my grandmother’s friends in California, to her in Oregon.
