Micro-history of the Christmas Art Card

Sending Christmas Art Cards is a loved and anticipated holiday tradition that began all the way back in 1843, when Sir Henry Cole and John Horsley of the UK designed the very first Christmas card. Since that time, millions of Christmas cards have been given and received in a gesture of goodwill and friendship. People have been sending each other letters and cards wishing each other well and marking special occasions since mail carriers rode stallions and carried swords.

 

The first Christmas Card features a banquiting family from the 1840's.

It’s the thought that counts

Nothing says you care like a hand picked greeting card. The Christmas Art Card Pack is only available through Avoca Gallery, so the chances are you are the only person in your circle sending them out this year.

Christmas Card verses the e-Card

“Once cards sent through snail mail are opened, they’re usually left on the kitchen counter, hung from the fireplace mantel, or placed in some other special spot in the house for everyone in the family to see, read, and enjoy, prolonging the cards’ impact and the good wishes you sent them with.

The benefits of a card sent through standard mail are its longevity and its personal impact. Mailed cards usually cause a little excitement or at least curiosity when they arrive. In my house, cards are opened before any other mail! Corbett, my youngest son, will come running with all the mail in his left hand and the card in his right hand as he excitedly shouts, “Mom, we got a card! We got a card! Can I open it! Can I open it, please!”

If your only relationship with someone is a digital one, then an email card is fine. If the recipient is family or a flesh-and-blood friend, then a standard card is going to be the best choice. The drawback of an email card is its brief lifespan. It has just about as much impact on the recipient as do the countless jokes, political musings, spam for weight-loss miracles, and get-rich-quick scams. Plus, the recipients are likely to give it less than ten seconds of their time before pressing the delete key. And  It’s unlikely that anyone else in the family will ever know about the card, let alone see or read it.”
