Ever since the very first Christmas card was created over 170 years ago, the tradition of sending Christmas cards to loved ones has been upheld.
Initially, the rise of Christmas cards online led to a decline in traditional Christmas cards, and media outlets in the early 2000s began reporting that the Internet was killing off the old-fashioned paper Christmas card.
Fortunately, once the initial hype surrounding e-cards died down, it became clear that virtual greeting cards, no matter how cheap and convenient they might be, just can’t beat the sentimental feeling of receiving personalised Christmas cards that can be displayed throughout the home over the holidays.
Of course, the Internet has led to some advances in the way Christmas cards are sourced and created, and these days it couldn’t be easier to design your own Christmas card online and have it delivered right to your doorstep.
So, since the practice of sending Christmas cards is alive and well, just how many Christmas cards are sent out each year?
