Christmas Card Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always on December 9
Christmas Card Day, honors Sir Henry Cole (1818 - 1874) of England. Cole created the first commercial Christmas Card in 1843.
Just a few decades ago, sending Christmas cards through the mail was a holiday "must". Now, sending cards through the mail continues decline in popularity. The cost and time for writing and sending cards has caused many people to stop sending them. Free Ecards have surged in popularity. Animated Christmas and daily seasonal Ecards have made sending and receiving them a lot of fun.
Today is a good day to send out your Christmas cards and holiday greetings. If you have yet to do so, use today to get a start.

We suspect that on this date, Henry Cole marketed the commercial Christmas card. The timing is certainly appropriate. We have not yet confirmed this.
