In a season of great good cheer, whimsy abounds in the holiday-themed accessories we don, the seasonal cards we send and the holiday decorations we cherish. Artifacts in our Archives of American Art and the costume and home life collections of our National Museum of American History document the Christmas themes reprised in these delightful gifts and collectibles.
