4 Saturnalia Roman Mythology Funny Christmas Cards, 1 Study Like Athena Pencil

Love this


Part of a Classics class or the Percy Jackson fandom? Do you and your friends love Ancient History or Roman mythology? Or are you all just a bunch of atheist cynics? Make them laugh this Christmas with these Saturnalia-inspired cards!

Saturnalia was a Roman festival held in December to honour the god Saturn. It was known for its continual partying, gift giving and feasting, so may well have influenced later European Christian traditions regarding Christmas, such as The Lord of Misrule.

Get 4 cards and envelopes with this bundle, plus an Study Like Athena HB pencil!

Each card is professionally printed on matte 100% recycled 350gsm, A6 (10.5cm x 14.8cm) card stock. The inside of the card is blank so you can add your own message; the back is blank except for my stamp.

Note actual print colour may vary from monitor to monitor. There may be speckling on your cards as they are recycled from post-consumer waste. Cardstock is pH neutral and Long life certified. Stamps not included.

I made these after being inspired by stories of the Ancient Roman December celebration of Saturnalia (sometimes called a forerunner to Christmas).
