While colonists in the 18th century did not decorate their doors and homes with expensive fruits during Christmas, the tradition of decorating the Historic Area of Williamsburg with elaborate and fresh floral and fruit arrangements during the holiday season began in the 1930s and 1940s with Abby Aldrich Rockefeller. Our beautiful Holiday Pineapple Christmas Cards celebrate this tradition started by the Rockefellers at the time of the Historic Area's restoration that continues today.

These are very nice cards on medium to heavy stock. The colors are vibrant and the message cheery. Arrived quickly after I purchased them on line. I like them very much. However, I didn't realize the manufacturing origin of the cards was China. There were other cards on the Colonial Williamsburg website that were labeled as "Made in the USA" and I should have double checked on these.
Normally purchase Christmas Cards when we visit Williamsburg. Since we have been confined home, placed our order via email.
The cards are so beautiful and the quality is excellent. I'm sure every one that I send the cards to will enjoy them and feel very special.
