Prosit Neujahr

Prosit Neujahr 1911

Postmarked 29 December 1910
Brasso, Germany

For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
        ~T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"

Great postcard. So what does the pig with a bag of money strapped to its back, which is leaking coins, mean? I assume this refers somehow to a prosperous New Year? Or is there some other meaning?

In German, "to have pig" is to have good luck. I think the idea is that if you have pigs, you will always have food and income.
