Join Dr. Daniel Gifford for a lively lecture and display of several dozen Christmas and New Years postcards from the early twentieth century. Largely forgotten today, holiday postcards were once one of America's biggest crazes, with millions printed, mailed, and collected. However, the fad did not exist in a vacuum, and Dr. Gifford reveals how these tinseled Santas and snowy landscapes were part of much larger debates about immigration, urbanization, women's rights, and a changing America.

Dr. Daniel Gifford's is a scholar of American popular culture. His expertise on American holidays has been featured by NPR, the New York Times, Washington Post, and USA Today among many others. He received both his Master’s and Ph.D. in American history from George Mason University, and currently teaches American history and museum studies courses at several universities around Louisville.
