Old Christmas cards
Every year, around 50 million Christmas cards are sent by post in Sweden. They are often decorated with well-known figures such as Father Christmas and happy children. These figures were not always part of the Swedish Christmas tradition. They became popular at the beginning of the 20th century when people started to send a lot of Christmas cards. Most of the early Christmas cards were imported from Germany. They showed magical landscapes where Protestant, Catholic and folkloric traditions had been interwoven.
