A Brief History of Personal Christmas Cards

The traditional giving of written and personal Christmas cards started in 1843. While the giving of printed Christmas cards started in London in 1822. Sending Christmas cards even became a problem with the U.S. postal office which was still just a few years old during that time. The very first personal Christmas cards read “merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you.” Out of one thousand personal Christmas cards copies made, only 12 remains at present, all owned by private collectors.
