Thanksgiving Cards (103)
Many countries celebrate the concept of thankfulness in different ways, but they all contain the same underlying theme which is to show gratitude. In this country, many companies express this by sending corporate Thanksgiving cards.
Sending business Thanksgiving cards is a very inventive way to get your greeting card message out to customers before the race to send Business Christmas cards to your best clients. While there is no harm in sending both types of holiday cards, Thanksgiving cards sent to recipients who may not celebrate religious holidays, will represent your sensitive foresight and impeccable good taste.
The first "Thanksgiving" in 1621 was a celebration of the first successful harvest by the pilgrims in the New World. When we look back over those nearly four hundred years, it is very easy to see the many changes that have occurred throughout them.
Perhaps the first Thanksgiving card was a smoke signal! Maybe it was a homemade treat. One thing that has not (and hopefully never will) change is the desire to acknowledge in some way the benefit that we have reaped from one grace or another.
And so, here we are in the 21st century and this acknowledgement process has become very civilized. It is a really great and convenient way to let business associates, clients and friends know that you are grateful for so many things, not the least of which is their role in your business or personal life.
By sending out company Thanksgiving cards, you too can "reap" the harvest of knowing that you are preserving a tradition of sending business holiday cards that is an intrinsic part of your culture, and a thoughtful extension of your appreciation.
