I havent had the privilege of seeing even a picture of it, but there is a Valentine card made in the 1400s that is on display in a British Museum. The first Christmas Card was commissioned by Sir Henry Cole in 1843 where he had John Calcott Horsley paint a card for him centering around the feeding and clothing of the poor. Although he wasnt the first, Louis Prang is known as the Father of the American Christmas Card because prior to that we imported our greeting cards from England. Greeting cards were original fairly expensive because they were a handmade and hand delivered gift so they were mainly enjoyed and shared by the wealthy. By about the 1850s they became more affordable because of the advances in printing and postage rates were very reasonable.
So far weve discussed very happy and joyous occasions that you can offer card as a congratulations to and thank you too, however, there are somewhat sad reasons to give cards as well. If there is a death in the family, a condolence card is given to show your support and love for the person suffering the loss. Other fairly sad are the I Miss You or Going Away which are either when someone is leaving a workplace or city and are offered by friends and family or co-workers. These are usually very emotional times and the cards are heartfelt and sincere, especially when its most difficult to find the words to describe your feelings.
