May you enjoy not only this long holiday weekend but the freedoms which we all enjoy, won by great sacrifice by so many. Thank you to all who have, and continue to, serve and sacrifice to protect our great country!
Above is a collection of patriotic Christmas memorabilia. The flag fans were made in Japan and are in the form of cigars. Passed out at parades and political rallies, when exetended, a flag patterned fan emerges from the tip. The small shield is a candy box. The smallest I have ever seen, it is no larger than a penny and has a silk flag face! The postcards all feature Santa with either Uncle Sam or the American flag. The postcard in the lower right forefront is particularly desirable as it shows Uncle Sam and Santa Claus toasting the holiday on a gilded background.
