Sweet sixteen is a landmark birthday for 16-year old girls and boys and an acknowledgement of their transition from childhood to adulthood. A traditional birthday party is organized on the 16th birthday. Sending a card is the easiest and most convenient way to say ?Happy Birthday.? It lets the young persons know how special they are to you.
Statistics show that birthday cards cover 62 percent of the greeting card industry. It is estimated that over 1.2 billion birthday cards are sent out every year. A company alone produces more than half a billion birthday cards each year, and there are thousands of different greeting card companies, big and small. Approximately there are about 5 billion people celebrating their birthdays in the United States of America alone, which estimate that there are about 700,000 birthdays on the average occurring everyday. And studies show that an American receives about eight birthday cards for each birthday. Calculating the numbers, it means that approximately 5.6 million birthday cards are sent out each day just in the United States of America. August is recorded as the month when Americans celebrate the most birthdays, attributing to 9.07 percent or about 21 million, followed by July with 8.80 percent. Studies show that about 70 percent of the people would write additional messages into the card to give it a personalized touch. About one-fourth of the birthday cards sent are given to friends, and about two-thirds are mailed.
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.
