Peppy 2015!
Vintage "New Year Wish" card

Peppy 2015! For us to advance as a civilization, I believe that one of the things we need to do is move on from the word "happy."1 It's overused and all worn out. We have a deep, rich language, and I think we should deploy more of its words. So I propose that we replace happy with peppy, a word that dates to World War I and has plenty of tread left on its tires. Other finalists were chirpy and perky.

Anyway, this vintage card, with its quill pen, scroll and hourglass, offers A New Year Wish:
Every good wish, every kind thought,
May the New Year bring,
And your heart rejoice in the love and joy
That you find in everything.
In addition, I think we should use this card's typography as the official font of 2015. We can call it Peppy Sans. Thoughts?

1. We also need to move on from reality television, fossil fuels and war, possibly in that order. But that's a topic for another day.
