Christmas cards were originally written in England when children would practice their writing skills on cards for handmade gifts to their parents. The representation of a red robin with a card were based on the old Victorian postmen in England who wore red uniforms and were referred to as robins that would deliver Christmas mail. Christmas cards were later commissioned in the mid 1800′s and were lithographed on dark cardboard with holiday messages and greetings. To celebrate this Christmas with your friends, the following series of Christmas messages for friends will help to inspire you with the right message to share.
