Ho Ho Ho! It’s that time of the year where you get all festive and everything around you is merry and bright. This holiday season, it’s time to rejoice and bask in the festive fervour. Along with food, fun and laughter, it is easy to be lost in a whirlwind of parties, setting up the Christmas tree, finding gifts for friends and family etc.. As quickly as the holidays appear, they tend to vanish in a jiffy etching the memories that will last a lifetime. We wish dear ones far away by sending them greeting cards which carry heartfelt wishes and spread joy. This tradition still continues but we are looking at adding a zing to these wishes.
Did you know that greeting cards hold significance?
The idea of sending Christmas cards was coined by Sir Henry Cole in the United Kingdoms in 1843. He was a senior government official who helped set up the ‘Post Office’ (then called as Public Record Office) and wondered if it could be used more by ordinary people. Sending posts was a luxury back then that ordinary people refrained themselves from sending posts. Along with his friend he designed a Christmas Card for 1 shilling. As printing methods improved, Christmas cards were setting the holiday trends. People used it to send joy and happiness to loved ones.
Christmas cards now have evolved dramatically. A whopping of 1.6 billion cards are sent in the present day. It’s customized, personalized and extravagant to the choices of the sender. While few hold dear to this annual ritual many others see this as time-consuming and redundant with social media buzzing with updates of the festivities. On the other hand pinging and buzzing digital gadgets that bring messages seem less earnest and lack the personal touch. How to reconcile this difference and stand out of the mailbox? Gotcha!
