Holiday Cards - Who Do You Send Them To?

Yep, we're at that time of year and our friends over at Grammarly.com has another infograph for us.




Grammarly also included some interesting facts about Holiday Cards:


  • Americans send 1.6 billion holiday cards annually
  • Women purchase an estimated 80% of all greeting cards
  • E-cards have become an environmentally friendly alternative to paper cards
  • Christmas cards originated in London, where Sir Henry Cole commissioned the first in 1843.
  • Two batches totaling 2,050 cards were printed and sold that year for a shilling each.
  • Despite the separation of church and state, it’s customary for the President and First Lady to send White House Christmas cards each holiday season.
  • Calvin Coolidge issued the first official Christmas message to the American people in 1927.
