Sending Christmas cards to friends, relatives, co-workers and family members has long been a tradition in Christmas celebration to show greetings and care about this season. For your family members that live far away from you or your long distant intimate friends, the Christmas cards could be presented as a best Christmas gift and greeting.
When you are showered with Christmas gifts and good wishes from your loved family or friends, it would be also your time to show your care and gratitude towards people who care about you.
Christmas cards made from beautiful Christmas pictures or photos would be a pure perfect Christmas gift and a commemorative Christmas
Glue small fern leaves on a piece of paperboard. Putting them together simulates the look of a Christmas tree, especially if you add a small star sticker or cut-out on the top. The trees can be decorated with small gift packages, i.e. squares made of colored tape which you wrap with cross ribbons in contrasting colors.
Even if you are not good in drawing, you can still create beautiful Christmas cards. Cut out Christmas motifs from magazines, preferably colorful ones, and glue them together on a piece of paper (e.g. in several layers). It sounds simple, but you can really make very beautiful and creative cards in no time.
The tradition of sending Christmas cards begun in 1843 – about the same time as the first Christmas seal was published. The first Christmas card was produced in England, and the idea was well-received, because the following year, more than 25,000 Christmas cards were sold. However, the first Christmas card provoked controversy in certain circles in England, because the Christmas card pictured a company of people touching glasses and saying “Merry Christmas”.
