Electronic Greetings Day is celebrated in America on November 29th. The day encourages you to send someone an e-card and remember how it all began. Not so much time has passed since such postcards were a real novelty!
When the Internet, social networks, and instant messaging tools appeared, it became much easier to pay attention to loved ones. Sending happy birthday wishes, cheering up a sad friend with a funny video, or sending words of support along with a beautiful picture all became possible in a few clicks. People received the first electronic postcards and rejoiced! Now we see how the animation was original, yet with poor resolution and quality.
The exact origin of this holiday is unknown, though some sources claim that websites that generated the cards were involved. This happened towards the end of the 1990s. Now we cannot imagine life without them. Technologies continue to develop and bring people together at a distance of hundreds of kilometers: one never knows what the future holds.
Below are 5 benefits of e-cards:
- Always appropriate – suitable for any occasion due to the huge assortment. You simply do not have enough holidays to look at all the catalogs on the Internet!
- Available at any time – day or night, you can always send a pleasant congratulation to the right person.
- They do not require a lot of traffic and are sent instantly.
- Suitable as a way to unobtrusively remind yourself.
- They bring a smile to the recipient’s face!
How to take part
Take a look at what postcards existed in the beginning. Post the variations on social media and discuss the changes with your friends. Send pictures to loved ones, picking them up for each person separately, and supplement them with your own words as desired.
