Christmas is right around the corner!

OMG… I just looked at the calendar and guess what I have to do?  Start thinking of Fun Car Tattoos for the holidays!   Well, that will be fun!  Think that I’m going to run down to the International Gift Show in San Francisco this weekend and check it out.  I can’t wait to see what’s going to be new for the holidays this year!

In the meantime, I have a car magnet that I think (hope!) will be a best seller this year. 

It’s the Peace Symbol!  Wouldn’t that be a super way  to end the year?  Peace on earth!  It just doesn’t get better than that!

Do you know the origin of the Peace Symbol?

According to Wikipedia, this forked symbol was designed for the Direct Action Committee Against Nuclear War (DAC) and was adopted as its badge by the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) in Britain, and originally was used by the British nuclear disarmament movement. It was subsequently adopted as an international emblem for the 1960s anti-war movement, and was also adopted by the counterculture of the time. It was designed and completed February 21, 1958 by Gerald Holtom, a professional designer and artist in Britain for the April 4 march planned by DAC from Trafalgar Square, London to the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment at Aldermaston in England[4]. The symbol itself is a combination of the semaphoric signals for the letters “N” and “D,” standing for Nuclear Disarmament. In semaphore the letter “N” is formed by a person holding two flags in an upside-down “V,” and the letter “D” is formed by holding one flag pointed straight up and the other pointed straight down. These two signals imposed over each other form the shape of the peace symbol. In the first official CND version (preceded by a ceramic pin version that had straight lines, but was short lived) the spokes curved out to be wider at the edge of the circle which was white on black.

Peace Symbols come in an assortment of colors today and can be seen on everything from tee-shirts, to sandals to car magnets.  Hey…Did I mention car magnets?  If you want to buy yourself something awesome this year (or need a perfect gift for one of your friends), check out this Peace Symbol magnet at Fun Car Tattoos!
