Oh the joy of receiving personalized Seasons Greetings from family and friends! This stalwart tradition of connecting with loved ones around the holidays may have evolved over the years, but the sentiment to share holiday cheer has endured.

Still looking to spread holiday joy this year? Our MyHeritage DNA kits are the perfect gift for everyone on your list. With our Black Friday DNA Sale, you can give this wonderful gift and enjoy our lowest price ever! 

Though relatives and friends may not be gathering this year as they normally would, the COVID-19 era has taught us that there are many other meaningful ways to connect. While it’s amazing to have the technology to speak to loved ones with a laptop or phone, others might opt for the tried-and-true holiday cards that were once the standard for their ancestors. Such cards may not allow us to hear the voices or see the faces of the cards’ senders and recipients, but their words live on and may be cherished for years to come. .  

Here are some holiday cards from yesteryear that MyHeritage researchers found, and the stories that were unearthed as a result.
