Festivity - Christmas Greeting Cards
Christmas cards are one of the most memorable images of the Christmas and are the best tool to convey between people a range of sentiments related to the Christmas. The custom of sending Christmas greeting cards started in Britain in 1840 and the practice soon became an established part of the build-up to Christmas by many people (including non-Christians).

As printing technology developed, Christmas cards were produced in large numbers during 1860. A German printer by the name of Louis Prang was designing and selling cards in Roxbury, Massachusetts in 1874.

Over a billion Christmas cards are now sent every year in the United Kingdom, many of them sold in aid of charities. In UK this year, the British Post Office expects to handle over 100 million cards EACH DAY, in the three weeks before Christmas.

This year Americans will spend close to $1 billion on the cards and another $500 million for mailing them!

Traditionally, Christmas cards printed with religious pictures viz. Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus, Candles, bells, coloured balls, stars or other parts of the Christmas story. Today, pictures are often jokes, winter pictures, Father Christmas, or romantic scenes of life in past times.

Now plenty of Cards are available and every body can send free online greeting cards, animated cards, e-cards, postcards & e-greetings with meaningful and beautiful quotes for friends and family on all special occasions including Christmas.

The traditional greeting inside a Christmas card often reads "Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year".
Some Christian groups such as Jehovah's Witnesses do not celebrate Christmas because there is no explicit Biblical authorization for the tradition, and so they do not exchange Christmas cards.

However many businesses groups, from small local businesses to multi-national enterprises send Christmas cards to the people on their customer lists, as a way to develop general goodwill, retain brand awareness and reinforce social networks. Many organizations produce special Christmas cards as a fundraising tool.

We also can make our own Christmas cards with little efforts. Encourage children to make cards for their own use as any thing made by own hand is always special, feel good and get more satisfaction.
