People have been sending and receiving Christmas greeting cards for a long time. This tradition started in the 1800s, when a prominent educator and patron of the arts in England, Sir Henry Cole, became exhausted from receiving and reading holiday letters. So, Sir Cole and his artist friend John Horsley came up with a 3-panel card design, for brief holiday greetings. This has evolved into what we continue to send to friends and loved ones -- Christmas cards.
As technology advanced, it seems that Christmas card designs have become limitless. Virtual cards came into the limelight a few years ago. They were fashionable for a little while, and they saved time and money, but they just don't convey the same level of cheer as the good old Christmas cards that you can hold physically and treasure. According to the American Greeting Card Association, Americans purchase approximately 1.6 billion Christmas cards each year. Surprisingly, millennials are now the group sending the most cards and keeping this tradition alive!
