Christmas card

The first Christmas card was created and sent in 1843. Sir Henry Cold, a wealthy British businessman, wanted a card he could send to friends and business contacts to wish them a "Merry Christmas." A thousand copies of the card were printed by John Horsley and sold for one shilling, or 24 cents, each. One of these original cards was sold at an auction in Wiltshire, United Kingdom, in 2001 for more than 20,000 pounds, or $30,734. (Courtesy graphic)
