International Mermaid Day is a newer holiday--I believe this is the fourth year it has been formally celebrated. Though there are several dates listed as International Mermaid Day, our local news reporters were talking about this unusual holiday this morning! I have tried to discover how this day was established and so far--I have come up empty handed.
I love mermaids. I've collected books, cards, postcards and fairy tales about them for years. In older lore, they aren't the beautiful, kind beings of today. In fact, they were a little scary!
This beautiful vintage postcard is a part of my cyber collection. I couldn't find a back for it--however, even so--I wanted to share it because its whimsical qualities.
Happy Postcard Friendship Friday. I hope you find some fun ways to celebrate International Mermaid Day! Have a wonderful weekend, dear Friends.
