Why Send Thanksgiving Holiday Cards?

by Todd Smith on November 9, 2009

If you live in the Unites States, your calendar is probably marked for Thanksgiving on November 26.   It is one of our country’s favorite holidays.   No religion.  No patriotism. Just family.   In fact, Thanksgiving is the most traveled holiday of the year.   Everyone comes home to celebrate.

So what are Thanksgiving Holiday Cards?

Well, they’re like Christmas cards, or Holiday Season cards or New Year’s cards but they are sent in late November, in time for U.S. Thanksgiving, instead of late December.

Why in the world do people send them?

Thanksgiving cards are great if you want to be different.

If you want to stand out from all the others, send a Thanksgiving card.  If you want to present your message at at time and place when people will take notice, send a Thanksgiving card.   If you want yours to be the first card they get, Thanksgiving holiday cards are the way to go.

The average family receives 10 to 22 Christmas cards and the average business receives 21 to 42 Christmas cards.   If your card arrives with all the rest, and doesn’t stand out, you may not make that coveted spot on the mantel.

What Do You Think?

How many Thanksgiving cards did you get last year?  I got zilch, zero, none, not-one!

If you want to stand out and get noticed, especially if you only send one card a year, maybe a Thanksgiving holiday card is the way to go.  What do you think?

Have to agree Todd, that would be a great way of standing out from the crowd if you wanted to get noticed! And wow, that second picture featuring the autumn leaves and the soft blur of colour in the background is stunning!

We don’t have Thanksgiving over here in Australia, but I’ve often watched American movies with scenes of Thanksgiving in them….. the turkey and all that, everyone around the table dishing up and sharing …. and thought how lovely it would be to have a holiday that focuses on family and giving thanks for all the wonderful things we have in our lives.

Of course, there’s nothing stopping families doing that whenever they want to, but it just seems to get left by the wayside in our fast paced and hectic world. Having a day that reminds us of the importance of family and our connections to one another is very noble in my opinion! Wish we had it over here.
