Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  The Jewish Holiday of Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Sunday night.  These postcards are New Years' greeting cards from the early 1900's, published by the Williamsburg publishing company.  Each year I post a few of them from my collection of over 100.  Take a look at the others that I've posted earlier, as they are interesting artifacts of years past, no matter what religion you affiliate yourself with.

They are gorgeous. And a good reminder to be respectful of other cultures and beliefs.

Happy PFF!

P.S. I would like to feature your postcard about Wagner's Ring Cycle on Guest Heart Thursday - with a link back to your blog - but only with your okay!

I hope to hear from you soon!

Nice postcards! Now I feel like reading another Mich Albom book :) I always like the Jewish lessons and values I learn there.

Happy PFF and Happy New Year!!

Clytie (and others), thanks so much for the sentiments. I'd be happy to be featured on your blog next week!

I meant to say, aren't they unique.
