Choosing Christmas Cards for Business or Pleasure

Whether choosing Christmas cards for business or pleasure the process usually takes a lot of time. Should we choose what we like or choose what we consider to be safe? It can’t have a Santa, or a tree or a bell. It can’t say Merry Christmas. Do we always have to be politically correct?

It seems that we spend so much time making sure that we don’t offend anybody, that we forget the reason why we send Christmas cards in the first place. I have friends and business acquaintances from all different religions and backgrounds. I have received Christmas cards from many of them. Some say Merry Christmas, others says Season’s Greetings. I’ve have also received cards that say Happy Hanukah and Happy Kwanza. I can honestly say that I have never felt offended by any of them. If you want to send me holiday greetings, I will accept them graciously. I will be grateful that you took the time to think of me.

I choose my holiday cards by what speaks to me. Something that makes me smile and often brings me back to a place of my childhood. So if you receive a Christmas card from me that depicts a tree covered in lights and says Merry Christmas, please do not take offense. I mean no harm. What I am really saying is enjoy your holidays, no matter how you celebrate them. I send you love, laughter, peace and joy!

  1. I agree wholeheartedly! My church gave out a button last year that read “It’s Okay to wish me Merry Christmas” I will always remember the reason for the season.

  2. I could not agree more. I never understood how anyone could be offended by well wishes during the holiday season. I certainly would not be. The card you choose to send should represent what the holidays mean to you. If I found out someone was insulted, they would be quickly removed from my list!

  3. Absolutely! Acceptance is just one of those extensions from a lovable heart that everyone should have during the holiday season. Instead of looking for things that are sure to be offensive because of different beliefs; let’s look for the meaning behind receiving anything during the holiday season. Love and happiness!

  4. I believe that there is a certain respect that anyone should have towards people of all faiths. For those like me, it would be foolish to send a Hanukah card to a Muslum, or a Christian card to a Jew. In my view, there are relatively few people who don’t know better.

  5. Business cards typically have a more corporate feel, but personal cards can be a lot more fun. It is so hard to go through all the great designs Gallery Collection offers because there is so much variety.

  6. Lisette, I am exactly the same. It’s the thought that counts! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family.

  7. Great article! I can see both sides of the argument. However, sometimes it seems like those who “preach” tolerance, come across as intolerant.
