The tradition of sending Christmas cards is a long one.
This postcard, sent in 1919, was addressed to Mr. and Mrs. G. Thornber, Summerland, B.C. Canada. It had a two-cent stamp and the cancellation mark read, “Buy war savings stamps and help reconstruction.”
Today, the postage for one letter or postcard, mailed from one Canadian location to another, is 85¢ if purchased in a booklet of stamps, or $1 for a single stamp. Postage to American locations is $1.20 and to international destinations, the cost is $2.50.
