Our respective national poets, celebrated 10 days apart, lived 100 years apart: Eminescu

Unde-i teiul cu-a sa umbră
Cu-a lui flori pîn` la pămînt?
Ce mai vis e viaţa asta?
Fericirea – ce cuvînt!

Who invented the Xmas card?

sources say it originated with
Thomas Shorrock, of Leith, Scotland
who, in the 1840s, produced cards
showing a jolly face with the caption
“A Gude Year to Ye.”
