Postcards about DAY OF THE DEAD

1272.  "I Was Kissed by a Teen-Aged Monster Last Night -"
Hello Chris!  I love Halloween!  We don't have it in Russia, but Halloween is really awesome!  We have "Swyatik," it's not a holiday, although there is a resemblance.  I think correct name - Yule (but there are differences)  During this period we conjure, tell fortunes and call spirits.  Sounds strange, I know, but it's funny.  Have you read The onster and the Marganita?  I adore Behecter the cat!  Love, Marcia
I don't find postcard with Day of the Dead, but I have skull stickers....

Hi Chris,  Our gardening season is in full swing!  It is good to have fresh food from the gardenand look forward to enjoying the surplus - canned or frozen - in the winter!  Enjoy your summer away from triple digits and fires.

Hello Chris!
If you were here in Idaho this morning, we could drink coffee (or Diet Coke!) and talk about Postcrossing.  Later, we could climb the hill behind my house and look out over the Portneuf Valley.  All the wildflowers are in bloom, and it's beautiful.  I am also a retired teacher (almost 9 years now), and I still miss the prep!  Who would have guessed?
Happy travels  -- Cheryl

Greetings from Birmingham, Alabama.  My name is Cara.  I love gaming and geochaching....I hate bacon, I organize M & M's by color before eating them... I'd rather take a bubble bath and read a good book than go to a bar... and I believe in remembering where you come from.  Happy 'crossing!  ~ Cara
