February 7: Send a Card to a Friend Day

Your mission, should you choose to celebrate Send a Card to a Friend Day, is to — drum roll, please — send a card to a friend! This rather self-explanatory February 7 holiday can be celebrated with snail mail, a hand delivered card, or an e-card.

I am particularly bad about sending mail of any sort), but, considering how great it is to receive it, I’m determined to get better. After all, it’s a great gift to others (even without any money in the envelope!), and it really takes minimal effort, especially if you go the free e-card route. So, new personal goal: write to friends more often.

I can’t find any evidence about who created this holiday, but there is a lot of speculation across the web that a card company may have been involved. 🙂 Oh well. I still like it

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
