Description

BLANK INSIDE

A watercolor painting by Canadian artist Patricia Peacock-Evans to celebrate Purim. Purim is a Jewish holiday to celebrate the Jewish people being saved from Haman. The tradition to eat the three cornered pastry, hamantaschen, on Purim appears to have begun in Europe.

The name is derived from two German words: mohn (poppy seed) and taschen (pockets). Mohntaschen, or "poppy seed pockets," were a popular German pastry dating from medieval times. Around the late 1500s, German Jews dubbed them Hamantaschen, or "Haman's pockets." The play on words likely references the rumor that the evil Haman's pockets were filled with bribe money.

Our notecards are custom printed at our location in Seattle, WA and come bagged with an envelope.
