Yet another item that holds fond childhood memories. My mother had one of these when I was little and I loved turning the pages and feeling all of the dimensional cards.
I think this is a great way to use and preserve the plethora of Christmas cards that don't seem to come flooding in like they used to now that we have so many modern conveniences like the internet.
Here is the rhyme that goes along with it..
A is for angels with halos so bright, whose carols were heard on that first Christmas night.
B is for baby the Christ child so dear, we celebrate Christmas his birthday each year.
C is for candles that so brightly shine, to give a warm welcome to your friends and mine.
D is for doorway with garlands of green, to make Christmas merry as far as they're seen.
E is for evergreen with fragrance most rare, so plentiful at Christmas their scent fills the air.
F is for fun the whole season long, from trimming the tree to singing a song.
G is for greetings, a merry "hello", with a heart full of love for people we know.
H is for holly with berries so red, we make into wreaths to hang overhead.
I is for Ice on snow covered hills, where sledding is fun along with the spills.
J is for jingle bells merrily ringing, to the whole world joy they are bringing.
K is fro Kris Kringle, so merrily he stands, he is called Santa in so many lands.
L is for lantern, I'm sure that its light helped Mary and Joseph on that first Christmas night.
M is for Mary, her heart full of love for her son, little Jesus, who came from above.
N is for noel, the angels did sing, to herald the birth of Jesus, our king.

P is for packages, presents this way, all around the tree for our Christmas day.

R is for red, a color so bright, we use it to decorate everything just right.
S is for shepherds who saw the first star, over Bethlehem's manger, and followed it far.
T is for trees we decorate with light, they wait for old Santa to come late at night.
U is for universe, the whole wide world, where Christmas brings joy to each girl and boy.
V is for Vixen, the lively reindeer, who always helps Santa deliver toys every year.
W is for Wisemen, who brought gifts so rare, and fell down and worshiped the Christ child there.
X is for X-mas, a short spelling for Christmas, but we like to spell it this way, "Merry Christmas"!
