burning candle Christmas tree ornament girl/woman kissing an apple ornament

When people used to illuminate their Christmas trees with actual candles in the pre-electric age (and they did!) it’s said that “fire was practically inevitable”, so much so that in 1908 “a group of insurance companies collectively refused to pay for fires started by Christmas trees with candles.” I’m the son of a fire department trainer, so the twee Christmas card above (from Curt Teich publishers, dating to the early 1900s) is, for me, more horror porn than season’s greetings. And that’s even before you contemplate the horror of getting a kiss from someone whose head is at once on fire and melting away!

That said, it’s cute and it’s passionate. Merry Christmas!
