Christmas Card Showing a Woman Dressed as a Christmas Tree, 1965-1968

Summary

By the 1960s, Christmas cards offered a greater variety of seasonal images. Rather than a traditional Santa, Christmas tree, angel, poinsettia, or the Nativity, this card sported a woman dressed in a pine tree decorated with 1960s trendy-colored ornaments. A garland necklace and star hair ornament are her accessories. Christmas decorations as fashion.
