Hello everyone, Christmas is fast approaching only 7 days till the big day, are you excited?
As I sit here and look up I see Christmas cards hanging on my wall and I think, who sent the first Christmas card and when, so I do what you do when you think such things, I ask Google. This is the answer I got.
The first Christmas card was created and sent in 1843. A man named John Calcott Horsley printed the first Christmas card for Sir Henry Cole, the friend who had given him the idea.
I then thought, I wonder how many Christmas cards are sent each year, so again I ask Google and this is the answer.
Over 2 billion Christmas cards are sent in the US each year.
In the UK, this figure will likely be around 900 million
Couldn't find an answer for how many are sent here in Australia.................
I can tell you that here the cost of a stamp to send a Christmas card is 65cents which is 35cents cheaper then the cost of a normal stamp.
