And as the ad says, "Keep your utensils clean."
Art by master illustrator J.C. Leyendecker....
He did a New Year's Eve baby every year
for the Saturday Evening Post from 1908 to 1943.
It's a medieval notion of rebirth dating to the 15th century,
but Leyendecker is believed to be the first person
to popularize the image in the modern mind.
Some of his babes were
not so heartwarming....
