Happy New Year from Belgium

 
Dated: 30 December 1954.
This card is from a street market where I bought it some years ago.
You can see some symbols of good luck on this card that will help you to get a Happy New Year.
The four-leaf clover is an uncommon variation of the common, three-leaved clover. According to tradition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders, especially if found accidentally. According to legend, each leaf represents something: the first is for faith, the second is for hope, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck.
The pigs are bringing good luck too. The verb “zwijnen” (zwijn is the Dutch word for a pig or a wild boar) means ‘having good luck or fortune’.
The bag full of coins is the third symbol. A coin is a potential amulet. Besides, there could be a ‘number one dime’ or a’lucky dime’ in it.
