On the fourth day of Christmas
Those 4 words (Merry Christmas to you) arrived on my phone and then in my inbox, as a colourful and animated e-card arrived to wish me season’s greetings.
Receiving a Christmas card is great, but if you want to get everyone a personalised card, avoid the post office queues or get your cards on Christmas Eve then an e-card might be for you.
What can e-cards do for you:
- Buy them from your favourite charity, so your money goes to them.
- E-cards don’t need paper or stamps, if you’re worried about forests being cut down, reduce the need for paper by sending electronic greetings this year.
- Save some time. You can get cards and send them from one place – no need to go to the post office or post box.
- Stop you missing the last posting date. E-cards can be sent to email addresses across the world, so if you miss the posting date for Australia or America, your friends and family can still receive a message from you in time for Christmas.
You’ll find there’s a lot more paper hanging around your home at Christmas, this article has some great ideas including using Christmas cards you receive this year to make gift tags for next year!
