The woolly mammoth may be extinct.
The custom of sending Easter cards, however, lives on (at least with us).
Our Easter card 2023 is designed as a little Easter riddle, because the statement and the photo on the first page certainly do not show an “Easter motif” at first (and also at second) glance.
But the connection to Easter can be found on the very next page.
Not only have the mammoths disappeared, but also the winter ice ages.
The fact that there are also two cars on the cover is pure coincidence.
By the way, the woolly mammoth died out at the end of the Pleistocene …
Here are a few more details about the realisation of the card:

And last but not least: Why do we actually send Easter cards …?
A self-portrayal. (Unfortunately only in Germany)
