A hundred years old Christmas wish

While checking our archives, we found a Christmas postcard from 1914, and then some more from different years. All of them were written in pre-reform Russian and featured an exchange between family members in Chernobyl and Kyiv in a period between two revolutions and partly during World War I. Actually, as it appeared from the texts, one of family members was a seaman on a battle ship.
