Yes, I Intend to Send Corporate Christmas Cards

Did you say this is socially unacceptable and politically incorrect? Bah humbug. I know the reason for the Christmas season and will stay with its original purpose. Peace on earth, goodwill to men, a Christmas Eve service at a hometown church with a tranquil nativity scene in front to remind us of what is most important in life. Corporate Christmas cards will be mailed out this year because there is nothing more American.

Exactly what are these seasonal greetings? They are verbs of action representing communications for the purpose of expressing good will. It can be the impetus to a productive conversation or a brief, sweet acknowledgement of an individual’s attendance on this earth. Think about it; even through the mailing of business Christmas cards we shamelessly accost one another with professional friendship, pay our due respects, and express kind wishes. Then through the discovery, reading, and handling of a brightly adorned Christmas card, a private moment in time is created in what could be a dreary, as-usual day. The recipient’s heart is warmed and made glad.

This uncomplicated extension of corporate kindliness is a sign of cultured society where perceived differences can be put aside to bring parties together in mutual regard for each other. Christmas is a national celebration that developed as our nation expanded and matured, and today the celebration still stands.

Unfortunately in today’s PC world, few people feel the same way. I can’t understand why people can take offense to Christmas cards that depict an image or a verse in which they don’t believe in. There is nothing wrong in wishing someone health, happiness, good fortune, peace, etc….

Had trouble following your post but if the bottom line is that you want to keep Christ in Christmas then I say Amen, I’m with you. What is the season without Christmas and what is Christmas without Christ. If you don’t want to acknowledge that then why celebrate the holidays at all.

I agree!! Bravo!! I feel we have all lost that Spirit of Christmas and giving. I think everyone should send cards. And not via internet!!!

No matter what your feeling is about Christmas, you can’t help but be involved in a holiday celebration of some kind since during the holiday months, celebrations are all around you! I think sending greetings online as well as in traditional cards is a great way to keep a happy tradition going.

While I believe in Christmas and sending out greetings to everyone I love. I believe corporations send out holiday cards as a form of marketing their company and/or product. Not everyone, but most.
