A couple of decades ago, some days before Christmas, a postman would bring some white envelopes with a piece of finely printed paper called a Christmas card, which contained wishes from people you knew and who cared about you. (Note: Did you feel weird that this phrase was written in past tense? Better accept it.)
Today, those who don’t follow this traditional way of Christmas greeting share their wishes online, via e-mail or on social media, so we thought we could lend a helping hand. Go ahead and share these pics to spread that Christmas spirit all around.

We absolutely love this pic: although not typically Christmassy, it combines several elements that feel like winter – season associated with Christmas in the northern hemisphere.
