To all Friends and Followers,

Jan 1st - A Happy New Year
Publisher and date unknown but probably early 1900s.

Back of the unused card.
Around the world it takes 26 hours for the New Year to encompass all time zones. There are actually 39 different time zones. We're posting this at 6 AM December 31 in Seattle and it is already Jan 1st in New Zealand and parts of Australia.

Check out more old postcards at Maria's Postcards for the Weekend where the theme this week is Time/Clock. Thanks, Maria, for hosting.

If you like the birds on our postcard, and other critters, be sure to check out Eileen's Saturday's Critters. Thanks, Eileen, for hosting.

  1. Still the 31st here too although I will enjoy seeing new year around the globe on the news, my own personal favourite being Sydney Harbour Bridge. Happy New Year.

  12. I wonder if those birds on the card are an actual species or if the artist dressed them up a bit. In any case they are very pretty with all the red. Thanks so much for being a great blogging friend in 2016. May the Lord bless you with every joy this new year!
