Greeting cards have traditionally gone hand in hand with the special days that people give gifts or exchange gifts. In some cases people will use a greeting card filled with some sort of other gift as an alternative to the wrapped present. It is usually customary to put money into a greeting card as an alternative gift but in recent years the popularity of scratch off lottery tickets has meant that money no longer goes into the greeting cards and scratch off lottery tickets are used instead. Many people also include a greeting card along with a gift and for decades it was never really thought that a greeting card could stand on its own as something people give to convey a sentiment. The greeting card industry has tried for years to make people feel that a greeting card is something you can just give to someone as a special way of saying you are thinking about them but aside from the popular get well cards it has never really caught on that greeting cards can be given at any time. But lately is has seemed that greeting cards are beginning to stand on their own and as the quality of the greeting cards get better then the sentiments they convey are standing the test of time.
A New Year's card is one of those sentiment greeting cards that is able to stand on its own as an expression of genuine hope and emotion from one person to another. A new Year's card is a special way to say to someone across the miles that you took the time to wish them health and happiness in the coming year. A beautiful New Year’s card is something anyone can keep as a token of your expression of good wishes for the new year. As the year turns from old to new it has always been customary to wish those closest to you good wishes for the coming year and what better way to do that than with a beautiful New Year's card.
So as the year comes to a close you may want to set aside time to send out special New Year’s cards after Christmas just to let people know that you are thinking of them. Getting a card for New Year’s may not be as special to people in real life as the greeting card commercials would want you to think it is, but it is a wonderful gesture to let anyone you know remember that you wished them well for the coming new year.
