Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories - Favorite Christmas Card

My favorite card is one that was never sent.  It was kept in a box with wrapping paper, ribbons, and bows. Some were new and some were not so new, but good enough to reuse.  A story Mother tore from a McCall's magazine was also stored in there for reading to me at Christmastime.
I have no idea when my Mother got the card.  Chatter Box - 4550 - Made in U.S.A. is printed on the back.  It was just as much fun to see each year as the ornaments we'd hang on the tree. 
A small metal bell is inside the bell printed on the card.  It is no longer a bright and shiny red, but it still jingles and makes me smile.
