Happy New Year, Soviet Style

New Year’s greeting cards from the Soviet Union.  The one at the top is dated 1978; the one at the right 1989.

Note how both of them–especially the one at the top–strongly resemble Christmas cards we send (or used to send).  In a country where the government operated and subsidised a Museum of Atheism, this is about as good as it got.  You think we’ll get to this state at the rate we’re going?

And as for the greeting inside?  You were on your own…they came blank.

For information on the fine gentleman who sent these to me, Mr. L.V. Erofeev, click here.

Happy New Year–or С Новым годом!–to all of those who visit Positive Infinity!
