Happy Rally Day

Happy Rally Day!  This little gem of a card is a Rally Day Invitation - a reminder of a bygone holiday.  Celebrated to honor George Washington's Birthday, this year's Rally Day is February 23.
The card is a cute, color illustration showing three children with alphabet blocks.


  1. All of the Rally Day postcards I have seen are for Rally Day at children's Sunday Schools, and these are not for the same date at different schools.

  3. One very early version of Rally Day is celebrated at Smith College. It is an annual celebration in honor of Washington's Birthday. That's where I got the date. I found that "Rally Day" was used various ways around the world.
    Thanks for your information You're probably right - this one may be for a Sunday School. There were no other notations.

  4. Great illustration. The bonus of the letter blocks was nice. Thanks for sharing.
