Postcards got "big" during the Victorian era. Most of the fun Halloween cards I've found date from the early 1900s.

Halloween postcards have become the most sought after among collectors, driving up the price. And who wouldn't want a sexy witch like this one?

Personally, I prefer postcards with poems, spells, or folklore on the front. I also like cards that have something written by the sender on the back. The writing lowers the card’s value, but how else am I going to get to legally read someone else’s mail?

Some of the most popular cards were by the artists Ellen Clapsaddle (above), Samuel Schmucker, and Frances Brundage. This card shows the old tradition of seeing the man you'll marry in the mirror if you aim it over your shoulder on Halloween.

I wonder how many Halloween-related fatalities that caused?

Now send some magic our way, and post the link to your Witch’s Tea or Halloween-themed blog in the comments below!

    Read defying the witch and tell me what you think of my childhood dilemma when parsing out the line between lies & fiction.

    Happy Halloween! This is my favorite holiday, and it snuck up on me this year! Can we extend it another week or two?

    I’m in a group blog with three other mystery writers over at Chicks on the Case, and we’ve been celebrating the season with some Halloween-themed posts:
