Tomorrow is December 1 and there are only twenty four days left until Christmas Eve. What about sending a handwritten greeting to family and friends to get you and them into the Spirit of Christmas?

Here you will find some old Norwegian “julekort” for inspiration and joy! (Jul is the Norwegian name for Christmas, “kort” means card).
