With advanced technology and digital living, life has become simpler, hasn’t it? And, on the whole, we love technology for what it gives us. But there are some unnecessary victims of the digital age, like handwritten letters, cards and notes. These are still very much within our capacity to prevent from becoming ancient customs lost to the sands of time, and we should do our best to keep it that way. This season, start with the faithful holiday and Christmas card.
These days, it seems we rarely slow down from all the Christmas fuss and take the time to send what was once a must-do item on the festive to-do list. Maybe it feels futile because we’re so connected to everyone every single day; maybe it’s assumed that no one really appreciates a handwritten, mailed Christmas card these days; but those couldn’t be further from the truth. A personalised holiday card design, containing a thoughtful message and delivered in the pre-Christmas run does wonders to build excitement and show your loved ones that you were thinking of them.
