Wishing You a Lucky 2013
We’re pulling out some traditional good luck symbols from the NC Department of Cultural Resources collections database to counteract the last two digits of this New Year. Mary Taylor of Wake Forest received the above greeting card in 1910.
Black eyed peas are part of a traditional New Year’s meal and signify luck. Perhaps this “Good Luck” canning jar would be an appropriate way to preserve them.
As a new year begins, we look forward to continuing to promote collections preservation and access methods and growing our community of cultural heritage practitioners. Best wishes for good fortune in 2013!
