If you’re looking to send a friend one of the world’s first Christmas cards, you just need a stamp and about $7,000.
At an auction on Saturday at British auction house Henry Aldridge & Son, an anonymous bidder paid £4,200, which equates to $6,846, for a card designed in 1843 that is considered part of a set of the world’s first Christmas cards. The black-and-white greeting card shows a Victorian family eating and drinking and is inscribed with the message “A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You.”

More and more people are sending greetings online via email or using electronic cards or social media pages or even mobile phones. Have you stopped sending cards the old fashioned way?
