Christmas Card from Bethlehem

Bethlehem, Maryland is just down the road from Preston–where my Uncle Calvin farms. It’s common for people to drive to the tiny country town (known to the locals as “Beth-lem”) in order to mail their Christmas cards.

The best part was the message inside. My Uncle Calvin is known for his witty, concise, but hilarious letter-writing skills. In fact, my Mom-mom used to say that she wished Uncle Calvin would move away from home, just so she could get letters from him.

It reads, “This is late because the Mayans were wrong. Never trust an extinct civilization.”

  1. I’m so glad you posted this! I heard rumor that dad got put in charge of Christmas cards. He said “I did some of them normal, but then I realized if I was the one doing cards, I was going to do them my way!”

    Love him 🙂 (and you guys too!)
