Sending a holiday or Christmas card has always been a thoughtful way to let someone know you care.

This year, as the pandemic has made it harder than ever to connect with and be near the ones we love, cards have become an even more pivotal way of putting into words what we can’t with touching and feeling.

It won't be the same, but sending holiday and Christmas cards online is so important and needed. At a time where physical connections aren't an option, emotional connections can still remain strong.
