Christmas Card Day

Christmas Card Day is celebrated on December 9th of each year.  The staff at national Whatever Day were unable to discover exactly where this holiday originated, however ’tis the season for Christmas cards.

A Christmas card is a greeting card sent as part of the traditional celebration of Christmas in order to convey between people a range of sentiments related to the Christmas season. Christmas cards are usually exchanged during the weeks preceding Christmas Day by many people (including non-Christians) in Western society and in Asia. The traditional greeting reads “wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year”. There are innumerable variations on this greeting, many cards expressing more religious sentiment, or containing a poem, prayer or Biblical verse; others stay away from religion with an all-inclusive “Season’s greetings”.

Christmas Card Day is strategically a little over two weeks before Christmas Day.  Mailing your Christmas cards out on Christmas Card Day should get your Christmas wishes to your family, friends, co-workers, business partners, etc. in plenty of time before Christmas Day.
