To counteract my previous post, I'm offering some charming old fashioned new year greetings.

New Year greetings are traditionally bright, optimistic, and cheerful. I was amazed at some of the weird, bizarre, and extremely depressing cards I discovered in the dusty vintage archives.
Here are some samples.

I initially thought that was a BUG being blasted at the moon (it looks like it has legs) but it's the cork from the bottle.
"Looking into things afar off"
Looks like Mr. Potato Head gone awry.
Extremely unappealing.
These big ugly moon heads scare the jeeters out of me
Since pigs are featured in many of these cards, I'm assuming they're a symbol of good luck.
from Germany
Nothing says "Happy New Year" like vampire bats
a Carmen Miranda wannabe
Creepy snowmen
another doozy from Germany
a kid straddling a spurting bottle
The End

It's the day before Christmas and you still don't know what to buy for those hard-to-please people on your list.
Here are some helpful suggestions.

 Homemade edibles are always nice, and this candle salad probably tastes even better than it looks.

 ....or cupcakes....with a personal, whimsical touch....

 This is a rare breed, rumored to have been from Michael Jackson's private zoo.

 ...but I like them without wine....

 How about a pizza slice sleeping bag?

 I've woken up with a few of these beside me

Heck, I've woken up with a few of these, too...

I have a few good captions for this one
.....on second thought, I'd better not.....

 Toilet Teapot

and coffee mug

A crapping reindeer
(with flavored candy crap)

No thanks, I already have one

How about a charming holiday sweater?

Nope, not my size.....
.....too small.........

This is for the dolt who gave you the sweater

Make a lamp from a real squirrel
gives new dimensions to the word "fun"

for the kiddies on your list:
a Hitler doll
(these two munchkins look psychotic enough without the doll.....)

Think of the possibilities....

a Shave the Baby doll
(not made in the U.S.A., thank God)

for future motel maids

Charles and Camilla
walking wind-up dolls

yea, my cats just can't wait

last but not least
 gifts that can really be used

 (Aw, lighten's Christmas)
