Christmas Cards




Here Are A Couple Of Explanations
On The History Of Christmas Cards
There Are Probably More
But We Hope This Gives You Some Insight


The Sending Of Greeting Cards At Christmas Began In The Victorian Era
Though Wood Engravers Produced Prints With Religious Themes In The European Middle Ages, The First Commercial Christmas And New Year's Card Is Believed To Have Been Designed And Printed In London, England In 1843
That Was The Same Year That Charles Dickens Wrote "A Christmas Carol"

Or

"The Tradition Of Sending Christmas Cards Originated In The Mid 1800's When A Few People Began To Design Handmade Cards To Send To Family And Friends
A Man Named John Calcott Horsely Is Credited As Being The First To Actually Print Christmas Cards
The Card Depicted A Family Enjoying The Holiday, With Scenes Of People Performing Acts Of Charity

The Card Was Inscribed
"Merry Christmas And A Happy New Year To You"
