A birthday card now brings great joy to billions of people who receive them around the world. Little did the inventor of the birthday card all those years ago realize just how popular and everlasting the trend of sending birthday cards would become.
Though greeting cards have been around for something like six centuries, the custom of giving birthday cards is probably more recent. The concept of adhering to a calendar birthday developed alongside the finalization of the western calendar itself and while gifts were given on birthdays, the concept of a birthday card came about only in the last century. With the advent of printing, in the USA, a poor German migrant started a printing-business in Boston and he began to turn out Christmas cards. Later, the card giving custom began to include special events in the lives of people, including birthdays.
Nowadays, birthday cards, or any other greeting cards are no longer limited to physical cards. E-cards are great alternatives and are increasing in popularity. As long as the sender has an internet connection, he has free access to e-cards, anytime, anywhere.
