On the final day of ’12 Days of Victorian Christmas Cards’, I’d like to share a card from the 1860s featuring a New Year message. Many Victorian cards looked ahead to the New Year.

Cards from the 1860s always had a paper ‘lace’ border like this. In this card, you can see a scene from Dr Yule’s Popular Lectures for the Young with a Christmas pudding for the globe. I’m not sure what the diagram on the blackboard is referring to!
I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at these cards as much as I’ve enjoyed selecting them. This is my last blog of the year so I’d like to wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
