20 Odd and Awesome Vintage New Years Cards

Christmas cards, birthday cards and Valentine’s Day cards are all pretty de rigueur, but New Year’s Day cards are far more rare these days. Although it does appear that there was a time when New Years Day cards were a “thing.” And a odd, adorable and sometimes awesome “thing” at that.

We’ve collected an eclectic mix of vintage cards from decades past from naked cherubs to champagne-sipping angels.

Check out these blasts from New Year’s Days past below:
