An old tradition to send out cards to your loved ones for holidays is almost forgotten now, which is actually very sad. This is why we decided to try and revive this sweet tradition by offering to help you send out some spooky yet beautiful Halloween greeting cards to your friends, family, and significant others. So if you are interested in getting some lovely cards, this article is for you.
The Tradition of Sending Out Cards
For almost two centuries, people have been giving each other cards for the holidays. While some people purchase postcards in stationery shops, others prefer making them on their own. But no matter if you buy or make greeting cards, the tradition of sending them is quite old and incredibly sweet. In fact, the first postcard was sent by Henry Cole back in 1843, when he asked his friend, John Calcotton Horse, who was an artist, to paint such a gift for him. Soon, a new trend to send out lovely cards had spread throughout the world and it is still popular among some enthusiasts today.
As a matter of fact, in different countries, people have different traditions of sending out postcards. For instance:
In Japan, New Year’s postcards are sent with the image of the patron saint of the upcoming year (according to the Japanese calendar). Inside the card, Japanese usually do not write any wishes; instead, they write their gratitude to this or that person as well as all the good things that happened to them in the past year.
In China, the picture on a postcard is always symbolic, which a receiver has to decode.
In Spain, giving a postcard is some sort of reminder of oneself. It is used as a business card so that a person can remind their potential clients about the services or goods they offer.
In France, people usually send out postcards after the holidays, which might seem pretty weird for the majority of people.
In Belgium, most people prefer to make postcards themselves.
In Australia, a symbol of happiness (a chimney sweep, a pig, or a four-leaf clover) is a must for every postcard.
As you can see, sending out postcards is a lovely old tradition, which is popular all around the world, so you definitely want to at least give it a try.
Unlike Christmas or Mother’s Day, Halloween is a pretty unusual occasion for giving postcards. Yet it doesn’t mean that you cannot get some spooky cards and send them out to your family, friends, significant others, neighbors, or coworkers. Therefore, if you are interested in some Halloween cards, here are some cool options that I’ve found for you.
