Merry Christmas

  • The world’s first Christmas card was sent in 1843 - the same year that Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol

  • In 1843, 1000 Christmas cards were made. In 2005, 744 million Christmas cards were delivered by Royal Mail

  • Until 1878, Valentine’s cards were more popular than Christmas cards

  • Over 17 thousand million Christmas stamps have been printed in Britain since the first ones (designed by children) in 1966

  • The card below is of the world’s first commercial Christmas card. It was commissioned by Henry Cole in 1843, the same year Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol

Let me take this opportunity to Wish
Thanks for all your support as well...
