No gesture is quite as sweet and thoughtful as delivering greeting cards in honour of special occasions.

Sure, greeting cards can seem to be rather old school. But since time immemorial, they have served as a brilliant way to show thoughtfulness, gratitude, and appreciation. They are also perfect for expressing good wishes, luck, and happiness to the significant people in our lives, particularly during special life events such as birthdays, weddings, Valentines, and Christmas.

The best things in life always come as a surprise, and the best gifts are always the most thoughtful ones.

With the advancement of today’s technology, it is now easier to convey your feelings to a loved one. Whether it is your sincerest apology, your deepest gratitude, most heartfelt congratulations, or your wishful “get well soon,” many other greetings can be expressed digitally on special occasions.

Greeting cards have been around for as long as we can remember. We use them for various occasions, including Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, and many others. Greeting cards are also used to express thanks and other feelings as well. Giving someone a greeting card is a thoughtful way of showing that you appreciate them. Likewise, receiving a greeting card can also make you feel appreciated and special. While it is such a common practice to exchange greeting cards, not many people know much about how and where they come from at all.

Traditional greetings such as handwritten cards have become passe in the face of the big bright screen that dominates people’s daily horizons. It is so much easier to type a few words onto a friend’s social media wall to greet her a happy birthday. Furthermore, the ease with which we can communicate online encouraged an epidemic of shorter attention spans. The present average attention span is shockingly only eight seconds long, much shorter than the memory of a goldfish! Cards and letters have given way to cryptic tweets, texts, and wall posts that are much faster to read. But all of these does our brains a disservice as it makes it unable to exercise rigorously as it should.
