In the days before Christmas cards, many families would post each other letters that shared family news, stories and adventures. For the normal family, writing and receiving letters was a main event.
Early Christmas cards were passing drawn or painted by the sender and highly valued by the receiver. They took a long time to create and each one was exclusive. Printers began to copy the original Christmas card pictures and print them in quantity as the custom spread.
The custom of exchanging Christmas cards spread throughout the world and soon millions of people were sending and receiving Christmas cards. Today, the selection of Christmas cards is nearly limitless, including, many people who today design, create, and print their own unique Christmas cards with their home computers and colour printers. Though usually Christmas cards were always
signed by hand, many people choose to personalize their Christmas cards by having their name
or names stamped at the bottom to save time. Many people choose to use the image of family around the Christmas tree for their photo Christmas cards.
Nowadays, Christmas Cards can be sending by internet, through ecards with latest print or can wish your friends by sending them on Facebook or Twitter account.
