Christmas during wartime couldn't have been easy for Americans in 1943. This poster suggests a gift that helps the war effort while investing in something that accrues interest. The Christmas tee is filled with bonds, while presents lay below.
In America during WWII, every resource was poured into the war effort. With over 12 million Americans - 11% of the total population - serving in the armed forces, everything from food to labor was tight on the Home Front. The U.S. Government began soliciting bonds that everyday Americans could deposit to the cause, to be paid back by the government when the war ended with interest applied. This influx of cash flow allowed the US to buy tanks, feed soldiers, and essentially finance the path to victory.
