Not everyone celebrates Easter or Xmas


When we buy greeting cards for Christmas or Easter, we generally assume that the recipient also celebrates these Christian holidays or is Christian. But times have changed and today we have to be politically correct all the time. While there are millions of people who celebrate Christmas and Easter, there are other Christians who do not observe Xmas and they include Jehovah’s Witnesses, Quakers, and members of the Churches of Christ. In addition, we live in such a diverse nation where some cultures and races do not celebrate Christmas.

In general, Christmas and greeting cards go hand in hand; during this time of the year, people send cards not only to their families but also to friends and business colleagues. Whether the sender actually celebrates the holidays and Christmas is not important, but it is important today to think about your recipient. A well-intended Christmas greeting card can sometimes backfire, which can alienate your relationship. Unless you are sure that the recipient celebrates Christmas, it may not be appropriate to send a card that makes a specific reference to Christmas.

If all you want to do is cheer the person during the holiday season, especially when selecting cards for your business colleagues or distant friends whose religious affiliation you are not sure of, always select generic greeting cards that say ‘happy holidays’ ‘peace on earth’ or ‘seasons greetings’ and avoid the word Christmas- and no one will be offended.

We live in a world where people are very easily offended by religious words and hence it is important to be neutral.

It all boils down to how well you know the recipient; your friends and family will not be offended if you select a card with the word Christmas on it, even if they are not Christians, but your business colleagues may take it as an insult.

In the end, if you want to send a greeting card to maintain that bond- interpersonal or interprofessional; you should not be sending a greeting card that will potentially break that connection and make the recipient feel bad, even though your intentions were pure and good.
