February 21st Card Reading Day

When I first saw this day my head instantly we to the Tarot Cards used by many to tell their future. But then I thought about the greeting card companies. Oh, and then there are business cards, baseball cards, playing cards… when you think about it there are a lot of cards one could read! I think the intent was linked to greeting cards though. Which are sort of a lost art. Those cards use to arrive every Christmas and birthday and for special announcements, but they come few and far between these days. So maybe today you should look in your box of memories and see if there are any old cards there you can re-read.

How to celebrate – Go to your local Hallmark store. Send out cards for no reason at all. Create your own greeting card.

October 3rd World Card Making Day

Remember back when Greeting Cards use to be sent by mail. Seeing one in your mailbox was always a joy. E-cards are really cool, you can have them animated and with music but they just aren’t quite the same. Those Christmas Cards with the family portrait, the birthday greetings with some silly picture or statement, or both. Well today promotes the idea of going back to those days by creating your own cards. Now I suppose you can do that online if you are some computer wiz but that ability is beyond most of us. So today, create your own card and send it out. You probably will surprise someone but make them very happy as well.

How to celebrate – Make your own greeting card. Make it a family project. Remember it’s not the quality of the art but the thought that matters.
