Once upon a time in America,
many companies big and small, privately owned and publically controlled, and even
federal, state, and local governments freely and openly sent Christmas messages
to patrons and subjects, confident that the vast majority of recipients would gratefully
accept the spirit of the intended sentiment. Such was this 1961 greeting from the
Testors company in American Modeler magazine. I today's easily - or falsely
- offended world, only the brave who do not fear retribution dare to wish someone
a Merry Christmas without first ascertaining the likely response. From the Airplanes
and rockets website, "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"
Testors' Christmas Message
And now upon the Christmas time ...
the Testor Corporation
One of the pleasures of the holiday Season is the privilege of wishing you, the
good friends of The Testor Corporation, a Joyous Christmas and a Happy, Bountiful
