Christmas is one of the most popular occasions to give and receive physical cards and ecards. Business Christmas ecards are a great way to express the thought behind Christmas while cutting down on time and cost.
Christmas is celebrated on Dec. 25 of each year, and is commonly accepted as the birthday of Jesus Christ. Christmas was originally celebrated on Jan. 6, and in Armenia and for the Armenian Apostolic Church, the Jan. 6 date remains and is a public holiday.
There are many traditions and celebrations that surround Christmas. The exchanging of gifts is one of the most popular, where most families gather on Christmas day for a meal of turkey and all the trimmings and the opening of presents. In some cultures, including in Germany, the Christmas tree is put up on Christmas Eve day (Dec. 24), Christmas presents are exchanged on Christmas Eve, and the tree is taken down soon after.
Santa Claus is the star of Christmas in many cultures. He is normally dressed in a red outfit trimmed with white fur, and boasts a white beard and a jolly laugh. Santa Claus gives presents to little boys and girls if theyve been good throughout the year; otherwise they may receive coal in their stockings. The gift-giving occasion isnt just reserved for Santa Claus; there is also Sinterklaas, Father Christmas, Père Noël, Christkind, Kris Kringle, Weihnachtsmann, Joulupukki, Babbo Natale, Saint Basil and Father Frost.
Decorating the tree itself can be quite the event as well. Many families have treasured ornaments from children and grandchildren that are placed upon the tree; some purchase new ornaments every year to add to the collection. Strings of popcorn, garland and tinsel are also ways of sprucing up your Christmas tree.
Sending business Christmas ecards is a great way to keep in touch with clients!
