Christmas Cards and Holiday Cards: What’s the Difference?

If you think that Christmas cards and Holiday cards are one and the same, then you are wrong.

A Christmas card is specific to the Christmas season celebrated by the Christian community. It commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ, the considered savior of Christianity. Meanwhile, other non-Christian religions and denominations have Hanukkah, Ramadan, and other celebrations that do not fall exactly on December 25. Most Christmas cards are associated with religious advent symbols such as wreaths, mangers, and angels. Then, they are accompanied by a short verse from the Bible.

On the other hand, holiday cards are more general in comparison to Christmas cards. It uses modern symbols instead, like a winter snowman and snowflakes. It is advised to use holiday cards instead when unsure about the receiver’s religion. Being sensitive to someone’s beliefs will put more emotions on the card that you will be sending.

There are plenty of these cards that you can download along with some wedding cards and invitation cards. Choose your design and send them to associates, families, and friends to express your merry greetings to them, regardless of their religion.
