National Thank You Note Day

National Thank You Note Day

Thank You Notes are the cards that we see lined up on shelves. Some are filled with silly tunes, while others have words that carry a lot of meaning. Although they’ve been around as long as we can recall, some of them have been around even longer. But do we really know their true history and where they came from? Let’s dig deep into the past and discover the true history of these cards. They were used by Egyptian and Chinese societies in ancient times to send letters of friendship or good fortune to their loved ones. Let’s now do the Time Warp to 1800, when Europeans used papyrus papers to write social notes and send them to their family and friends. This is what sparked the creation of the greeting card. Let’s not lose sight of what we are here for: the history of greeting cards. Louis Prang, a Prussian Silesia native, fled the Prussian Government in 1850 and emigrated from Switzerland to America in 1850. We might wonder why he was being pursued by his government. In 1848, he was involved in revolutionary activities. After settling down in Boston, Massachusetts, Prang started to sell and produce greeting cards to Europe. He also began selling Christmas cards in America in 1873. It only requires us to be with our families and friends. Once that is done, we can pass out cards and notes to thank them for their gifts and for the love we share every day. National Thank You Note Day, a fun and wonderful holiday, makes spending time with family more joyful, enjoyable, and overall happier.
