It’s National “Send a card to a friend” day!
It was all the rage in 15th century Europe: sending a card.
A Birthday is #1, Mother’s day is #2 in the purchase pecking order.
The internet digital options and social media has driven the act of mailing down; and it continues to shrink about 5% a year. Stats were hard to nail down, but it appears the average person sends about a dozen a year.
But today, let’s really make it personal: stop texting, pull out that sharpie and send a card. Thank someone for their business, tell a friend you are thinking of them. Spread some love. If we do, I’d wager a lot more people will be smiling next week.
