Birthday cards are great to receive from a family member, close friend or even a co-worker when it’s your special day. Well, businesses have special days too! Did you ever receive business birthday cards? Last November I received a card at home announcing Mickey Mouse’s Birthday Celebration at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. When my daughter saw the card, she immediately thought it was for her and assumed Mickey was celebrating his birthday with hers since they are in the same month.
I did the only thing I could think of. I made reservations for the entire family to spend a few days in Florida to celebrate her birthday. Of course we had to bring special personalized birthday cards that she signed just for Mickey and handed to him at the special character breakfast we had set up in advance. We took so many pictures of Mickey, who was extremely excited to receive his card! He really did make a big ado for her and she just bubbled over with delight. We all had a wonderful time and it made a five-year-olds birthday extremely special. All she talks about now is how she and Mickey had a birthday party together. On the flight home, I thought, “How smart of Disney World to send business birthday cards.” By sending a card, you really can make dreams come true!
