Henry Cole, who was the first person to sell Christmas cards in London in 1843, sold them one shilling. The money he made from these sales was used to open a public records office. The Post Office was born. It allows people to send and get cards without worrying about how they will reply. It may seem like a small gesture, but sending a Christmas gift card can be just the same as sending one.
There are many types of cards you can send. In the late 1840s, a German printer produced the first Christmas cards in America. They were very expensive, and most people could not afford them. In the United Kingdom, the first commercial Christmas card was made in 1915 by a Boston lithographer named Louis Prang. This allowed for a very realistic holiday image and allowed for five millions cards to be made in one year.
