Interesting Christmas Info - Rudolph & Greetings

Did you know…

rudolph the red nose reindeer
In 1938, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer was created as a part of a Christmas promotion in the US.

The first commercial Christmas cards featuring a family drinking wine with greetings of "A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You" were commissioned a long time before the reindeer in 1843 by a civil servant named Sir Henry Cole in London.

The development of Internet and the promotion of a greener environment have revolutionised Christmas card. "E-cards" are now the popular choice to help reduce wastage and replace greeting cards made out of papers and/or other traditional materials.
