For years Hallmark employees fashioned giant Christmas cards as holiday gifts for Hallmark founder J.C. Hall. In 1966, the tradition evolved into creating and decorating a life-sized Christmas tree. Each year the tree was unveiled in Mr. Hall’s office during the last working days before Christmas.
The tradition continued for 17 years until Mr. Hall’s death in 1982. See the amazing tree collection.
