Greeting Card Campaign: 10-29 Hermit Day

Hermit Day. No one knows why. Perhaps it originated in the 60s as "Herman's  Hermits" Day.  Who knows?  Nowadays nobody much remembers en-er-y the Eighth I Am, or Kind of a Hush or Leanin' on the Lamppost so Peter Noone and his cohorts are largely forgotten now. Now we just celebrate hermits - strange agoraphobic people who like to live far away from Thomas Hardy's "madding crowd". It's rather nice, though, to get away from the crowds and the general sea of humanity. So sneak off alone somewhere and celebrate or better yet, bring along your sweetheart and be hermits together. Give her this free downloadable Hermit Day card to start off the day.

Today, October 29th is

Just click on the caption below the picture of the hermit.  The link will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs.  Download the file. Don't try to print the file from within Google Docs. I use a lot of fonts and Google Docs doesn't seem to like them very much.  Instead, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "download" and copy the file to your own computer. Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you prefer.  Print the card from there and it should be fine.

This is a side fold card, so when you print it, be sure to select "landscape" and if you have two-sided printing, choose "flip on the short side" so that the inside of the card is the same way up as the outside.

Don't forget to write something sweet inside for your best girl - something more than just your name. And heaven help you, don't forget to sign it. 

So, get lost and have a happy, secluded, quiet, and peaceful Hermit Day.
