About National Send a Card to a Friend Day
The holiday was introduced to raise the popularity of sending physical mail – cards or letters – to your friends and loved ones.
No need for an elaborate letter to your friend. While it’s nice to fill your friends in on all the details of your life, a simple postcard to check in with your friends is also a great way to celebrate National Send a Card to a Friend Day. It’s simple and to the point, but still a sweet gesture.
Sending greeting cards has been a pastime since the 1800s, when companies like Goodall and Charles Bennett began mass producing cards. And in 1910, Hallmark, America’s oldest and largest greeting card company, was founded by Joyce C. Hall.
Interestingly, there is no Get a Card from a Friend Day on Feb 8th or Feb 9th - maybe that highlights the lack of consistency in delivering mail these days?
