Sending Personalized Holiday Cards Never Gets Old

by Henry L. on December 22, 2011

With Christmas only days away, I have received many holiday wishes from family, friends and colleagues.  I have gotten e-cards, emails, phone calls and text messages, but nothing compares to having personalized holiday cards in your hands.  There’s something about a card that makes you feel like that person went the extra mile to send their holiday wishes.

Out of all the Christmas cards I have received so far, my favorite one was from a colleague in New York.  It was a Gallery Collection design.  It was a striking red berries design with a black background.  The colors were absolutely beautiful.  I have it hanging by my desk.  There is no way an e-card could compete with this card!

That is why every year I continue to send personalized Christmas cards.  I put mine in the mail the first week of December!  It is sort of a holiday tradition for me.  I made sure to send one to each person that I wanted to extend my warmest wishes to, both personally and professionally.  In this day and age, it is so easy to get caught up in doing everything electronically.  But there are just some things that the electronic world can never beat: sending Christmas cards!

I agree that Christmas cards are the best way to wish someone Merry Christmas. Too many people get caught up in day to day activities and they often don’t take the time to sit down and write out a personalized card. There is no better way to let someone know that you are thinking of them by sending them a personalized Christmas card.

Agreed. Receiving an actual christmas card in the mail versus receiving an email just makes that much more of a difference. Some people might find the tradition slightly dated, but I disagree. Electronic forms of contact are nice too, but there’s really no comparison.

This is true, there is no competition when it comes to the real thing. An e-card is alright, but if you want to touch me in some way, send me the real thing.

Someone can send an e-card to their whole email list. That’s just so impersonal. Plus, you can’t hang up an e-card like you can with a real card.
