Here's a beautiful gallery of vintage Hallowe'en postcards from the New York Public Library Picture Collection on Flickr.

From now on, all my pumpkins are going to have badass sideburns.
I keep seeing Halloween cards at Walgreens, which makes me wonder: who sends Halloween cards?! I’ve never gotten one.
Until now, I assumed Hallmark must have invented this recently, but it looks like not so much.
There have been cards available for Halloween for as long as I can remember, but there do seem to be more than there used to be. I’ve given a few Halloween cards, but they generally accompanied gifts (often of creepy/gross foods… yes, I’m one of those people who makes things like severed finger treats).
