The custom of sending Christmas cards was started in the UK in 1843 by Sir Henry Cole. He was a senior civil servant (Government worker) who had helped set-up the new ‘Public Record Office’ (now called the Post Office), where he was an Assistant Keeper, and wondered how it could be used more by ordinary people.
Christmas Cards appeared in the United States of America in the late 1840s, but were very expensive and most people couldn’t afford them. It 1875, Louis Prang, a printer who was originally from German but who had also worked on early cards in the UK, started mass producing cards so more people could afford to buy them. Mr. Prang’s first cards featured flowers, plants, and children. In 1915, John C. Hall and two of his brothers created Hallmark Cards, who are still one of the biggest card makers today!
Sending Christmas cards out during the holidays can be simple if you begin early. If you want your recipients to have enough time to enjoy your family’s cheer before the holiday Christmas begin. Start your Christmas card mailing process 3 weeks in advance of Christmas day, your family and friends are usually overloaded with cards and gifts the week of Christmas so it’s always a smart idea.
Here’s something novel: use your end-of-year greeting cart to share something important, something meaningful. December is notoriously a lonely and dangerous month; share a message of love and hope and optimism with those that mean something to you. Everyone can use a bit of holiday cheer—and a semi-personal message in someone’s mailbox from a loved one can mean a lot.
In last year Americans buy 6.5 billion greeting cards annually, according to data from the Greeting Card Association. Of those, 1.6 billion are for Christmas, the largest card-sending holiday in the country. And greeting-card mail, it seems, has declined at a much lower rate than overall mail.
Sending Christmas cards to loved ones is a timeless tradition that many of us look forward to all year. From sharing well wishes and holiday sayings to showing the children all grown up, you can use your handmade card to make the Christmas feel even more special.
