|This was the card produced by Sir Henry Cole|
What I do find quite inexplicable is the need felt by most people to give cards to everybody they have ever met. Well, maybe that is a slight exaggeration, but it always puzzles me why we feel we must give cards to people we see frequently. You know what it's like; you go to a do of some sort and start handing Christmas cards to everybody you know while they are busy doing the same thing. Why can't we just shake each other by the hand and say that we wish them a Merry Christmas?
