As was customary for U.S. businesses, Hallicrafters ran a Christmas advertisement in the January issue of magazines where they appeared. The January edition, as is common even now, is typically mailed in early December, getting it in the hands of readers in time for Christmas. This "Here's to a Good Old Fashioned Christmas" (which many state governors want to end beginning this year) message appeared in the January 1942 issue of QST magazine. Halli(gan) and (hand)crafters was founded in Chicago in 1932 by William J. Halligan. The company designed and manufactured radio equipment for hobby, commercial, and military applications and quickly became very popular amongst their users.

We wish we could give you the DX we used to enjoy not so long ago when, on clear starlit nights, stations thousands of miles away could be copied across the room.

We hope it won't be long 'til we will be back together again - one happy family able to send heartfelt Christmas greetings by radio around the world.
