This undated Girl Scout Holiday card may have been made at the council level. Style of the hat puts it in the 1930's. I added the green border to define the edges.

Girl Scout Christmas Catalogs were rare during the 1950's and apparently disappeared after that. It stayed that way until 2008 - when a "holiday" supplemental catalog was offered. Since then a few more have been offered.

The 4-page 2008 "In The Spirit of Giving...Great Holiday Gift Ideas From Girl Scouts" offered 6 new ornaments, some patches & pins and a few other items. Most items used generic seasonal wording, those that didn't weren't seasonal items.

 

It completely omitted the word Christmas.

It did not contain any items for other faiths.

It was the first Christmas-y catalog in years.

Holiday-type Girl Scout catalogs came out somewhat regularly until 2015, then except for a couple of ornaments in the Gold/Silver/Bronze catalog of 2016 there hasn't been much.

As of September 2020, no new catalogs have been offered.
