What to Write In A Greeting Card
The custom of sending greeting cards can be traced back to the ancient Chinese, who exchanged message of good will to celebrate the New Year and the early Egyptians who conveyed their greetings on papyrus scrolls.
Nowadays, greeting cards are usually given on special occasions such as birthdays, Christmas or other holidays, they're also sent to convey thanks or express other feelings.
When it comes to writing a message in a greeting card, there're people who have no problem picking up a pen and adding a warm, personal message.
