2000 - 2007 Christmas placecards and menus

What started as a last minute way to jazz up Christmas Eve Dinner turned into a family Christmas tradition. This yearly tradition fostered my love for calligraphy at a young age. My sister started the tradition in 1981 and I started taking over the job when mom gave me a calligraphy kit in junior high! Each year the family members put the cards on the Christmas tree. They have become very special momentos. Some show the passing of a family member or new additions to the family, etc. As the years went by we started writing down on the back of each who was present at the dinner. Each card is special. Here are some throughout the years since I have had my own family.
