Greeting Card Campaign: 11-14 National Pickle Day

Click here to download your free card.
November 14 is National Pickle Day!  Cleopatra thought pickles made her beautiful. Julius Caesar thought they made his soldiers strong both physically and spiritually. The come in dozens of varieties including Dill, Kosher Dill, Sweet, Gherkin, Candied Dill, Brined, Polish, Hungarian, Swedish and Danish, Lime, Bread and Butter, Cornichon, Sour and even Kool-Aid Pickles. The name comes from the Danish word pekel which means "brine".  Some 5.2 million pickles are consumed in the United States, mostly of the cucumber variety.You can get them slice, diced, chopped in a relish, whole or on a stick at the State Fair. We have records of pickles in history dating back to 2030 B.C. around the time cucumbers were first imported to the Middle East from India.

Tell your sweet pickle that you'd be in a pickle yourself without her by sending her a National Pickle Day Card. Just click on the caption below the picture of the pickle.  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.
