Christmas Card Arrives 93 Years Late

A christmas cardA postcard featuring a colour drawing of Santa Claus and a young girl took almost a century to reach its destination.

The Christmas card was dated Dec. 23, 1914, and mailed to Ethel Martin of Oberlin, Kansas, apparently from her cousins in Alma, Nebraska.

Oberlin postmaster Steve Schultz says it's a mystery where the card spent most of the last century. He says: "It's surprising that it never got thrown away."

Ethel Martin is deceased, but Schultz says the post office wanted a relative to have the card. That's how it ended up with Bernice Martin, Ethel's sister-in-law.

She says the 93-year-old card was apparently found somewhere in Illinois. "That's all we know," she said.
