Happy New Year

Happy New Year

It’s January 1st. The new year is finally upon us! Here’s wishing a fantastic upcoming year to you and yours. As I said at Christmas, thanks for all your support. I can’t wait to see what this fresh year brings, new travels, new books, new conventions… there’s a lot to look forward to in 2016.

For your enjoyment, here’s a postcard from the Victorian era featuring a potato wearing a hat and boots holding an umbrella and wishing everyone a Happy New Year. What a jaunty and thoughful fellow!

New Year Potato

You’re welcome.

Now, if that didn’t quite satisfy your new year helping of strange, feel free to check out these other postcards. Featuring a picture of a cat with glasses in a bonnet, a floating dog head delivering greetings, or a bug using a telescope to look at the moon. You know, seasonally appropriate festive stuff.

The Victorians were a weird people.
