HomeFun.co encourages families to rediscover some of the lost rituals that made the holidays special for generations of the past. One ritual that has seen a rapid demise in recent years is the act of sending Christmas cards. While the reasons for this demise are obvious, most people would agree that it is still important to reach out to others with personalized seasonal greetings.
In the past, Christmas cards provided clever comments that senders could extend upon when addressing loved ones. These days, there are numerous quips that can be found online, some of which have stretched the boundaries of what is generally considered appropriate for family-oriented holidays. To regain the proper framework of card greetings, people need to approach the ritual in measures often lost in modern day conversation – more elaborate than text messaging and more succinct than face-to-face communication.
Christmas cards were initially conceived during the mid-19th century as a way to extend holiday wishes across vast geographical divides. In today's virtual world, however, such divides no longer exist. Still, an old fashioned greetings card is more than just a message; it's an ornament that sits well along the reefs and snow cones that decorate the holidays.
In today's world of junk mail, physical in-boxes can seem as wearisome as spam folders. For that very reason, personalized seasonal greetings can offer relief to many people who now view mail-sorting as a chore. Amidst all the dish promotions, internet offers and deals on the best premium tv packages, old fashioned cards from loved ones serve as heart warming reminders of simpler times from the past.
