TOF Christmas cards starting from the mid-1980s

In the early 1980s one of my photography students, Miriam Aiken mentioned that their was a nicely decorated Christmas tree on the Capitol's west lawn. A day or so later I was there to photograph it. The following year that photograph was used for the first card in the series and is at the bottom of the list. The more recent cards are at the top of the list.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Good Yule, Happy Saturnalia, and Happy Birthday Mithra. I tried to include everyone.
