Thank you all for your inspirations. I was raised in an Irish family where every New Year's Day my father would go through our Christmas cards and pick out a new Three Wise Men card to hang over our front door. I was told it was for happiness and prosperity during the new year but have never been able to determine the origin of this tradition. I still do this every New Year's Day; hoping for happiness and prosperity but more as a tribute to my Dad. Now that not many send religious cards any longer, there have been years that the same card has hung over our front door for several years. I have passed this tradition on to friends over the years and try to send them Three Wise Men cards and now I have inspiration to make them! Thanks!
