4 Holidays You May Not Know About

We’re all familiar with the major holidays, but there are many other holidays throughout the year that you may not know about. Between Christmas, Hanukkah, Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day are a bunch of appreciation days, celebration days, and other minor holidays. Luckily, we’ve got you covered with specialized Holiday eCards. These lesser-known, “weird holidays” provide additional opportunities to show others our love, appreciation, and care.

 

1. National Boss Day – October 16

On October 16, celebrate the jefes, the head honchos: our leaders, supervisors, and managers. Bosses love getting eCards. It’s a fact. We looked it up.

4. Miss You Day – July 17

On July 17, let your special someone know how much you miss them. What better way to cross the distance than to send a greeting that shows them just how much you care.

Hey, that’s not my grandpa!

If you haven’t been following the tumblr account for Grampa and Grand Master Flash  then you’ve been missing out on plenty of accidentally adorable grandparents.

Apparently, grandparents are accidentally tagging Hip Hop forefather Grand Master Flash in their Facebook posts with surprising frequency, (enough to justify a tumblr account, anyway) and the posts and subsequent commenting are priceless.  Check out a few…

The 3 Biggest Benefits of Sending an eCard Anytime

You don’t need to wait for a holiday to roll around to let someone know that you’re thinking of them. According to University of Michigan Psychology Professor Christopher Peterson, “One of the staples of positive psychology is the gratitude letter: a written and specific expression of thanks to someone who has been especially kind or important to you who has never heard you express your gratitude.” Sending eCards “just because” can boost your relationships with friends and family members. Here are three of the top reasons to send an eCard anytime:

1. Let someone know they’re important to you. Peterson writes, “The thing about writing a letter is that no one can multitask while doing so, unlike e-mails or telephone calls. A letter represents undivided attention and is precious as a consequence.” Like a good letter, an eCard is a sign of affection. It can be saved, reread, and cherished.

2. Keep in touch. You don’t have to wait for a life-changing event to let friends and family members know what you’re up to. Keeping in touch is more manageable if you drop loved ones a line every few weeks. Let them know what you’ve been doing and thinking, what a day in your life is like. The more you communicate, the easier it gets!

3. Send support or encouragement. Bring a smile to your recipient’s face. Showing someone that you’re thinking of them can brighten the darkest day. When life gives you a hard time or you’re anxious about something, it’s easy to feel alone. Sending an eCard can be an unexpected gift.

Below are a couple cute “Thinking of you” eCards that I’ve selected from our collection. Here are more anytime eCards for Facebook.
