Christmas Card Use Is Rapidly Declining

Billions of Christmas cards are still sent each year, but they are rapidly being replaced by social media, videos, and other holiday greetings.

Do you still send Christmas cards?

A lot of people have cut back or eliminated cards altogether.

The overall trend is declining. Christmas card makers hope to reverse that trend with new, creative cards.

WZZM13.com reports:

Americans this year are expected to buy 1.5 billion Christmas cards, a drop of 25 percent over the past decade, according to Hallmark.The U.S. Greeting Card Association is more optimistic – it projects 2013 Christmas card sales to hit 1.6 billion.

On Facebook, we asked River listeners how many Christmas cards they planned to send this year.  We got a variety of answers. A few listeners said zero. Some said only a few, while others send out as many as ever.

We are more connected than ever thanks to social media and a variety of other options, but there’s still something special about receiving a Christmas card.
