Card packs

I had to explain to my Swedish family this morning how when I was in elementary school, we decorated boxes and everyone in class had to give everyone else a Valentine’s card. We would either make the cards or buy them in packs of 30 at the store. I explained that these cards often had popular characters that kids liked.

They had never heard of this.

So, for everyone who never heard of this or just for some nostalgia, here’s some examples of the packs sold in the 1980s when I was in elementary school, along with my comments:

My husband didn’t believe there were actually Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cards

Hamburgers equal love. Very American.

“Hulkamania’s runnin’ wild on Valentine’s Day”? What does that even mean?

Now who wouldn’t feel special to get a card from a raisin?

My personal favorite

Merry Victorian Christmas pt. 1

It’s that time of year again… time to wonder what kind of drugs people in the Victorian age were on when they made Christmas cards. Also time to wonder what their deal is with frogs.

I give you, Victorian Christmas card number one. Frog and Beetle dancing on beach with a dragonfly playing tamborine.

If you can get past a frog and a giant beetle dancing together, much less that they would make a tambourine small enough for a dragonfly to play, I still say the beach scene makes no sense at Christmastime.

Don’t shake his hand, Little Girl! Don’t do it! There’s something off about this guy. I saw him on the subway last week. Stay away!

Does this even have anything to do with Christmas besides the caption?

Horrible Vintage Christmas cards pt. 1

While looking for ideas for this year’s family Christmas card, I got stuck in a hole of very disturbing vintage Christmas cards. Either people of that time were really messed up or had a totally hilarous sense of humor. You be the judge. I’ll kick off the weekend each Friday with one of these until Christmas, I think. Just for a nice dinner conversation starter.  Here’s the first:

How my son sees me….

This is me on my 38th birthday.  I have arms growing out of my head and a door to my stomach where I can put cake.  Turning older isn’t so bad!
