Greeting cards
are an illustrated message that

expresses, either seriously or humorously, affection,

good will, gratitude, sympathy, or other sentiments.

Greeting cards are usually sent by mail in observance of

a special day or event and can be divided into two

general classifications: seasonal and everyday. Seasonal

cards, also called 

Holiday Cards, include those for Christmas,

Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day,

Easter, graduation, Halloween, and St. Patrick's

Day. Everyday cards include those commemorating

birthdays, anniversaries, or births; cards of

condolence, congratulations, or friendship; as well as

get-well cards, gift cards, bon voyage cards, and thank

you cards.

Modern greeting cards are usually of stiff paper or

cardboard, but some are made of cloth, leather,

celluloid, vellum, metal, or even wood, clay, cork, or

other materials. Size is determined by common usage, the

availability of suitable envelopes, ease of mailing, and

the system of grading according to price and quality.

There are also some kind of cards with neoteric design

like Laser Card and

3D Greeting Cards. Somenody even

use Sticker


Washi Tape
 to decorate the card. Extreme

exceptions include an inscribed grain of rice presented

in 1929 as a Christmas greeting to the prince of Wales

and a Christmas card sent to Pres. Calvin Coolidge in

1924 that was 21 by 33 inches (53 by 84 cm). The

imprinted messages on cards may vary in length from a

brief word or two to 100 words or more in prose or


The exchange of illustrated greetings among friends

dates from ancient times. In Egypt the new year was

celebrated by the exchange of symbolic presents, such as

scent bottles and scarabs inscribed au ab nab ("all

good luck"). The Romans exchanged strenae,

originally branches of laurel or olive, frequently

coated with gold leaf. Symbols of seasonal good will,

such as a Roman lamp impressed with the figure of

Victory surrounded by strenae, were inscribed with Anno

novo faustum felix tibi sit ("May the new year be

happy and lucky for you"). The acknowledgment of

the new year with exchanges of good will continued in

Europe through the early days of Christianity.

Speaking of cards, I thought of another paper product

that is used most often -


We all saw it over and over during the pandemic year: In

the face of remote and hybrid learning, students spent

hours tethered to iPads and Chromebooks, all day, every

day. While such technology thankfully allowed for online

learning that would have been inconceivable a decade

ago, excessive screen time has been linked to a host of

deleterious effects.

Students using devices to take notes are often bombarded

with updates, messages, and notifications, plus they’re

distracted by the ever-present temptation to search the

web. Authentic learning, however, requires concentration

and deep, uninterrupted immersion in a topic.

In a bid to reclaim some balance between digital and

analog learning, Many students are required to use paper

notebooks this coming year. Paper notebooks can help

draw young people's attention away from screens, and

they offer several educational benefits.

Using a notebook compels students to become more

deliberate in the organization and presentation of their

notes. Plenty of apps provide ways to create and manage

notes, but I’ve found that using notebooks places more

responsibility on the students to find, adapt, and stick

to a method that works best for them. And there is

always a tpyes of notebook to fit your love of using

habit. For example there are 



Spiral Notebook. If that is not enough,

it is very normal to add some 


on the notebook as

a additonal content.
