U.S. Troops Surrounded by Holiday Mail During WWII

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! In celebration of the close of 2014, we’ve collected some historical photos that give you a peek into what the holiday season was like in the past. Flashback to 1944 – how did U.S. Soldiers join in the festivities? Here we see troops engulfed by holiday parcels.

Check out this and more vintage holiday photos on our Pinterest board. Sending the warmest wishes for this festive season!
