December is probably the most festive month out of the entire year. There are so many holidays to celebrate, gifts to give, and family to celebrate with. The peppermint mochas are amiss, the stores are lined with garland, and everyone’s house is twinkling with festive lights. December is a month for giving back to our communities, friends and family. More than ever, sending cards is a great way to put a smile on someone’s face. Here is a list of The Greeting Card Shop’s Top 3 December Holidays perfect to personalize a greeting card:
Christmas (December 25th)
Christmas is the most card-sending holiday, according to The Greeting Card Association. Approximately 1.3 billion cards are sent annually in the United States alone. (The record number of Christmas cards sent by a single person in a year was 62,824! Let’s see you beat that!) Christmas is a great time to share your love and thanks to friends, family, co-workers and employees. You can send your Christmas cards in the mail, attach it to a gift, or even place a gift card inside. (Then they can buy whatever they may need!) No matter what you do, your recipients will appreciate the effort you went through to wish them a happy holiday! Our variety of Christmas Greeting Cards are perfect for everyone in the family, interfaith, romance, and even military members!
Kwanzaa (December 26th)
The name Kwanzaa means ‘first fruits’ in Swahili. Kwanzaa is an African American and Pan-African holiday, and speaks to the best of what it means to be African and human in the fullest sense. Many families celebrate with songs, dancing, African drums, storytelling, poetry reading, and a large traditional meal. For seven nights, someone lights a candle on the Kinara, and one of the Nguzo Saba (seven principles) is discussed. They are unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. Browse through our Kwanzaa Greeting Cards for anyone and wish your loved ones light, happiness, and peace in the coming year!
New Year’s Eve (December 31st)
Forgot to send a Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or Holiday card this season? Never fear! New Year’s Eve is here! The holidays can be a stressful and busy time. Sending New Year’s mail is perfectly acceptable. It’s a great opportunity to motivate your loved ones to go out and do things they’ve always wanted to.
