Go Green! 25 Totally Cool & Kooky Vintage St. Patrick’s Day Cards

By Sunny Chanel |

There are several things that I am familiar with as being part of standard St. Patrick’s Days traditions. We wear green. We drink beer. We eat corned beef. But there was one tradition that I was completely oblivious to: the practice of sending a St. Paddy’s Day card. But apparently, once upon a time, this was a thing to do. I understand cards for birthdays and Christmas. But St. Patrick’s Day cards? Maybe it’s because I’m not Irish. Maybe it’s because the practice of sending out cards – of any sort – is becoming a thing of the past with so many people e-carding it out there. Maybe because there are not cards that say, “Don’t drink too much Guinness, eat too much corned beef and mistake that little man for a Leprechaun.”

But it’s an interesting genre of greeting cards, chock-full of cherub-cheeked children, shamrocks, and green, lots and lots of green.

The Smokin' Irish

Here are two Irishmen sharing the flame for their "Peace Pipes." An odd card, and one that seems far disturbing that cheery.
