    Via the excellent Twitter account Video Game Art & Tidbits, a set of Super Mario Christmas cards printed by Nintendo in 1989. Our beloved plumber, strangely alone but nonetheless cheerful, is depicted prepping for the holidays. Some shaded Capone Bold rings in the season with festive deco flair while Mario packs some snowballs and trims a tree. Tabasco’s funky descenders feel slightly less festive but make a fun impact (especially on the confusingly punctuated “Merry, Mario Christmas”).
