Christmas Card Day is celebrated on December 9 in the USA and reminds us that it’s time to send heartfelt wishes to our loved ones. Many of us are looking forward to this day, as it is a great opportunity to express our feelings with a bright, hand-signed card.
The tradition of giving cards has been around for many years, but sadly, many people have forgotten about it, and prefer to wish their friends a happy holiday through dry messages in instant messengers. But can they really replace the love that is expressed through a physical card? We don’t think so!
The specific date of the holiday is no coincidence, as it was on December 9 that the first postcard was created. It depicted a happy family. The following year, floral patterns were chosen for the design. Nowadays, we have a variety of options to choose from, thanks to the skillful designs of various organizations. Custom cards are also a great idea for other occasions, not just Christmas.
- In China, they believe that postcards are the prototype of business cards.
- In England, it is said that the first Christmas card was created by the artist Dobson, who gave it to a friend. This person was so pleased with the gift that he showed it to those around him, who immediately wanted one too.
- Modern society is more inclined towards sending e-cards (which have their own holiday!).
