Christmas Traditions: Christmas Cards

The tradition of sending Christmas card greetings to friends and family dates back to the Victorian card-chrperiod in England. The first ever Christmas card, designed by a British artist named John Horsely and commissioned by the British Postal Service, depicted a three-paneled Christmas scene. The center panel showed a family with children, parents and grandparents raising their glasses in a Christmas toast. The side panels featured acts of Christmas charity: feeding the hungry and clothing the naked. The inscription read “A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You” — a greeting familiar to all who purchase Christmas cards today.

The tradition of sending Christmas cards has evolved over the years. Today, many companies have even adopted the practice by sending Christmas cards as a way to wish their customers a very happy holiday.
