I love the rich colors and ornate gold embossing on this wonderful old postcard. They just don't make 'em like they used to! Such a lovely little princess, and that fellow with a horn must have deafened both Royalty and admirer. Perhaps the charming boy with his offering of roses, will get the chance to kiss the lady beneath the mistletoe on New Years Eve!
Interestingly, kissing under the mistletoe is a New Year's custom in France, rather than a Christmas custom as in other countries. New Year's Eve is called le Re'veillon de Saint-Sylvestre. Champagne and foie gras are usually included. This can be an intimate dinner with friends, or a grand ball. At midnight, everyone kisses under the mistletoe and offers their best wishes for the new year.
Just one question--I seem to see wings on both boy and horn blower--is this my imagination? What do you think?
