Colorful Easter cards, the friendly greetings to welcome spring, have changed through the ages. However, for more than 100 years they have been a symbol for the Easter season. An Easter postcard, which is continuously sent every spring season via “snail” mail, is in high demand among collectors.
Who hasn’t seen an Easter postcard that depicts a busy Easter bunny with a basket full of Easter eggs? In addition, there are greeting cards, which show the Easter bunny having the difficult task of carrying so many Easter eggs that he has to use a wheelbarrow to cart all of the eggs!
Spring greetings became the height of fashion, as the post office began to carry Easter postcards in 1870. Since then, both postcards and enveloped-cards have been a wonderful way to send holiday greetings to friends and family members.
