    Quote: "Did you ever stop to think, and then forget to start again?"

    Author: A. A. Milne

    Inside: Blank

    Type: Greeting Card, 5 x 7 in., with envelope.

    Snippet on the back: When sending letters in the Middlge Ages, the signer would often initial with a Christian cross, or "X", and place a kiss upon it as a symbol of the faith and sincerity.

    The longer story (from Wikipedia): In "The Joys of Yiddish" by Leo Rosten, it is noted that illiterate immigrants (or those who did not know Roman-English letters) would generally sign entry forms with an "X" but Jews preferred an "O" to avoid making something that looked like a cross. Also, shopkeepers and salesmen would similarly sign receipts with a circle. Could this be the origin of the "O"?

    Availability: Usually ships the next business day.

    Also available as a Borealis Press Magnet
