The History of Xmas Cards
Every year we jump through hoops, stradle hurdles, and turn our schedules topsy-turvy just to send out our annual personalised photo Xmas cards. Of course we send personalised photo Xmas cards to all our family, friends, and loved ones to connect (or reconnect) and give a kind update before the New Year; but have you ever stopped to think about who started this whole tradition? Well, I can assure you that personalised photo Xmas cards have been around much longer than Coca-Cola’s Father Christmas! In fact, the first Xmas card was created and sent in 1843 by a man named John Calcott Horsley to Sir Henry Cole, the friend who gave him the original idea. Sir Henry Cole, a wealthy British businessman, wanted a card he could proudly send to friends and professional acquaintances to wish them a “Happy Christmas.” A thousand copies of the card were printed and sold for one shilling; and thus the first Xmas card was reportedly produced and sold to the public! Nowadays, the average person in Britian sends 50 personalised photo Xmas cards. So don’t fall behind on ordering and printing your personalised photo Xmas cards this year with Bags of Love!
