Christmas Card Holders
Christmas Card Holders When I Was a Kid
When I was growing up in the late 60s and early 70s, we lived in a very small two-bedroom house with less than 800 square feet leaving very little free wall-space to place a Christmas card holder. My mother had the cutest little Christmas card kit that came with some green and red braided string and lots of tiny little red and green clothes pins. She ran these strands of holiday-colored string from one end of the curtain valance to the other across the double windows in the living room.
As each Christmas card arrived in the mail she would take one of the cute little clothes pins and hang the car on the 'clothes line'. I remember it used to frustrate her if a card came in that was laid out in landscape style because that messed everything up. She couldn't pin the card where you could still see who sent it. When you pinned it portrait style you only pinned one side and that allowed you to still see who sent the card.
The Need for Christmas Card Holders
Times have changed and over the years it seems people just don't send cards like they used to. However, those who still send cards, really get into their cards. Think about it. With so many personalization options available, you are now able to create cards on your home printer or uploading family photos etc. to an online site. Then you can have them delivered or pick them up at the local store. Customized Christmas cards are very much in style.
Who wouldn't want to display those after your friends or loved ones have put so much thought and effort into creating them? Do you have a proper Christmas card holder?
Nowadays you have lots of options for Christmas card holders. There are ones shaped like wreaths and trees and pretty much any shape you can imagine.
