Friday Funnies

Christmas card featuring caricature of Ike and Mamie Eisenhower in Santa suits.  Text says "We wanted to put something of ourselves in our card for you."  Inside is a kiss print from Mamie and a thumb print from Ike.

Since it’s time for “Christmas in July”, I thought you might enjoy seeing a Christmas card sent by President Eisenhower and his wife Mamie to some of their close, personal friends.

The Eisenhowers were friends with Joyce C. Hall, the founder of Hallmark. Each year, Hallmark designed four unique cards for the Eisenhowers, many with humorous caricatures of the couple. This card features a kiss from Mamie and a thumb print from Ike.

Happy Friday!

  1. How wonderful. Perhaps that is what the world needs now, all of us putting a little of ourselves out there with love for others. Enjoy the weekend.
