Happy New Year!

Once, in the 1910s, special wishes were sent on New Year’s Day via post card.

Today, I want to put these old post cards to good use again, using them to wish you the best possible in the coming year!!!!

  2. Like the two of you, I’m fond of these old-fashioned cards. I wasn’t aware that there was once a tradition of sending a card for New Year’s Day separately from one for Christmas. I wonder if these cards were intended for people who didn’t celebrate Christmas.

    In any case, Happy New Year to you.

    • Hi Steve. Happy New Year to you too. The New Years cards I have were sent by the same people who sent Christmas cards (many are in my own family). Jane
