(3 1/2 x 5 1/2 In) This is an original antique F. A. Owens Pub. Co. card from the 1910s. "School Day Remembrance" from Cornwall School, District No. 19- Idaho, 1916 is an 8-page Christmas card containing 4 lithographs of holiday plants, poems and a list of staff and students.

"OH let us all unite in praise
Of Christmastide, fair Christmastide;
The season's best and dearest days,
Christmastide, fair Christmastide.
Now let the cheerful yule log blaze,
Now troll the ancient roundelays,
And loud the joyous chorus raise
Of Christmastide, fair Christmas"

"NOW let's be merry, one and all,
And keep the joyous festival
With mirth and music and good cheer
For Christmastide comes but once a year.

Now let us love and kindness show
To all about us, friend or foe,
And offer gifts to those held dear
For Christmas comes but once a year."

WHAT blessing can I wish you, O my friends,
Save that the joyful calm of Christmastide
Should wrap your hearts so close that never jar
Of the world's care or grief can enter it,
But only love to keep you pitiful,
And faith and hope to keep you strong and true.

"A Merry Christmas" and "A Glad New Year"
I wish you all, and may God's exceeding love
Enfold you close, until His tender hand
Shall lead you safely home to love's own land!"

There is Christmas music everywhere,
The Christmas bells are ringing,
The very air full of joy,
The Christmas tidings bringing.

I heard bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And never more the blessings
Shall from the year depart
If only we, dear children,
Keep Christmas in the heart.
Its love and thought for others
Are beautiful as flowers
And we may sow their beauty
In other hearts than ours.

Tis not the gift we get that brings
Our highest joy, my brothers;
The soul's true satisfaction springs
From what we do for others."

"CAROL children, carol,
Carol sweet and clear,
For, again the blessed
Christmastide is here;
Twine the glowing holly,
wreath the pine and bay;
Carol, children, carol,
Christ was born today."
