Looking back at Christmas

 Thanks to the Pandemic and problems with the USPS (no fault of its own), Christmas mail has been arriving in spurts.  The card from Monaco arrived yesterday.  

This is a selection of the cards I have received so far.  I anticipate (never expect) more cards to arrive this month.









This was a thank you card from Vera Arrivabene & her fiance, Briano dei Conti Martinoni Caleppio

On their greeting card, Margaretha & Nikolaus quote "Annunciata und Emanuele" "Astrid und Rafe". Did their daughters get married in 2020?

Thanks Marlene. Can you tell us more about Emanuele and Rafe please ? I guess Emanuele is Italian and think Rafe is American, isn't he ?

OK. What about Annunciata & Emanuele ? Thanks.

So Anunciata is engaged to Carlo Emanuele Musini, born in 1979, and Astrid is engaged to Ralph Worthington, born in 1985.
