Merry Christmas in 350+ languages!

Check out:

History of The Greeting Card.

We used to send greeting cards to friends, loved ones and family - Paper cards, Singing cards, Digital Postcards, Electronic Postcards, E-Greetings! But have you ever wondered how all these started? It is surprising to note that it is only about 200 hundred years old!

It gained real popularity in the mid 1800's. One thing is for sure: the first cards were fine pieces of art. Valentine cards were popular in the mid-eighteenth century and New Year cards were exchanged in Europe a long time before Christmas cards became accepted, in the 1870s. Not before the 1860's, everyone could afford cards. Cheap colour printing came along, and they began to sell in thousands, creating a new industry for artists and printers.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. And if you don't celebrate Christmas, then I wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

Merry Christmas!
