This week Sepia Saturday takes us on a nostalgic Hallowe’en journey. I love the old greeting cards and wish our Halloween cards were as charming.

Which do you like best?

    It’s a toss up. I like the first two best.

    I really like the last one. Do people actually send Halloween cards these days?

    I haven’t had a look but I’d guess the e-cards would do some business now for Halloween as well as the traditional cards.

    My vote is for the cow with pumpkins on her horns…

    The third one references seeing your love on Halloween – similar to the poem in the prompt. I guess it was a superstition we have lost over time. I hadn’t heard of it until reading several posts today.

    I like the one with the pumpkin seed verse. Some of the others are more attractive, but not so interesting.

    I wonder how the whole pumpkin thing started. Pumpkin seeds planted in a cross? What next:)

    Not that scary but charming for their old fashioned emphasis on trick. I wonder if school children liked to exchange these. My grandmother had a collection of similar greeting cards for Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, and Flag Day that she got in grade school in around 1915.
