Text of verse on inside of card:
Six hundred million miles, almost,
We've flown about the sun
Since last we raised a Solstice toast
And wished you healh and fun.
Now once again we think of you
Amidst the season's cheer
And wassail you with friendship's brew
And hail a bright new year.
- Best wishes at the Solstice Season
Text description on back of card:December 25, by the Julian Calendar, was the winter solstice. This day, originally regarded by the pagans as the day of the nativity of the sun - the shortest day of the year, when the light began its conquering battle against the darkness - has been celebrated universally throughout human history. Even being adopted by the Christians as a day on which to celebrate the birthday of Jesus, this ancient holiday, set by motions of celestial bodies, survives as a day of rejoicing that good will and love will have a perpetual rebirth in the minds of all people - even as the sun has a symbolic rebirth yearly.
