Valentines Cards / January 2, 2019 / Eve Callahan
The 14th of February that special and romantic day dedicated to lovers and those who are in love. Flowers cards and romantic gestures are given and received and the world becomes a wool place of hearts bunnies and soft violin music. Yeah right! Do you think that Valentines Day is about pranks on your friends? Maybe you are the friend who never receives a Valentines card and are sick of being the one left on the shelf? Whatever the reason youre going to love this idea we have come up with especially for Valentines Day. Giving Valentines to your classmates used to include endless hours of making them out of construction paper cute dollies and with painstaking attention to all the details. It was a project that was done at home for each individual child in the class.
And it was one that great pride was taken in doing. Today there are much fewer families making Valentines and many more just buying a box of them to give out to their classmates with a simple signature on the back of them. This has happened mainly because of how commercialized the holiday has become. As manufacturing techniques have gotten better and more cost effective that is the way that American school children have gone. Before this in the 1960s a book of valentines could be purchased. Children could actually cut out the cards from the book personalize them with lace trim or even with candy and then send them on. But it wasnt long before children were ready to skip the cutting out part altogether. The Puns Who hasnt smirked at the cute sayings that are placed on the Valentines cards? Such sayings as "Im Sweet On You" have been used for years and years.
At Christmas gift your children a photo Christmas card of the previous years gone by when they played in the snow and pestered Santa for gifts. But Valentines day cards continue to outsell all other cards for every other holiday except for Christmas and New Year. Children love to receive candy and cards anytime. To get the perfect photo Christmas card plan in advance and keep your camera ready. When you get a great "picture moment" start clicking. If you want to get a good family picture for Christmas you can use a tripod and take a lovely family photo. Photo greeting cards go easy on your pocket also as they are very cost effective. These photo cards can be printed and designed at very economical rates. The additional advantage is the variety of these cards which make it even popular.
