In 1843, the very first commercial Christmas cards were created and sent. This was printed by an artist named John Calcott Horsley for Sir Henry Cole (whose idea it had been). It allowed ordinary people to send cards through the ‘Penny Post’ before which it would have been too expensive and was only available to the wealthy. This method is now an inexpensive way to keep in touch, remember, offer condolences, sympathies, congratulations, express affections, feelings and keep connections. As written/printed communications they are more permanent than their digital counterparts (texts, emails, Facebook posts, etc.) which are often forgotten in around the same time (seconds) it takes to receive and read them. The tradition of sending real rather than printed greetings cards allows for a bright, cheery and decorative seasons greetings cards with handwritten messages which convey thoughtfulness and considerations more sincerely, because of the time taken to choose, write and send. Older people, especially those living alone, always very much appreciate these handwritten designs.
