In the 1950s, the Christmas spirit illuminated John Deere. We shared the joy with our customers in a way that one might classify as unique by today’s norm – through poetry. We published these Christmas greetings in trade magazine advertisements. John Deere advertising copywriter, Bernard J. Patrick, wrote many of them. Do you have a favorite holiday ad of your own?
