Winter is coming and with it the holiday season will be upon us. If you're like us at Clubcard you're looking forward to opening mail full of greeting cards instead of a bills. Sending and receiving Christmas Cards and Holiday Greeting Cards has a nostalgic appeal, fulfilling the tradition of sharing fond memories with our family, friends and the bonds we share.
These personal emotions attached to Greeting Cards are rooted in a long history, the first written greetings of good will date back centuries to the exchange of Chinese New Year cards. Many of our first memories of exchanging cards relates to valentines cards, which first appeared in the early 1400's as handmade notes to sweethearts.
Christmas cards as we know them trace back to the Victorian era London when, in 1843 Sir Henry Cole commissioned an artist to design his a Christmas Card to be commercially printed. The idea of custom printed greeting cards quickly bloomed when the first full line of Christmas Cards that could be purchased by the public was created by Louis Prang, a Boston printer who, without realizing the juxtaposition, gave birth to the 7 billion dollar greeting card industry by celebrating the birth Jesus.
While today's technology and social networks allow us to instantly communicate with friends and family around the globe these instant electronic message lack the tactile feel, physical exchange and feel impersonal to most of us.
Perhaps it is nostalgia, but the element of creating, hand writing a note and sending Greeting Cards gives us a sense of a real and personal connections in this modern age.
