When the Holidays start creeping up on the calendar, our loved ones that are out of town become prominent in our minds. We want to be near them during the gatherings and celebrations, so we call them and email them, closing the gap on the miles that separate us. But imagine living in another time when phone calls were not always reasonable to make and email was non-existent.
It seems hard to picture; your loved one is in another state or country and being in touch with them is close to impossible. Even if your loved one was just one town over, being able to communicate with them was only conceivable via the reliable postman. Writing a letter, putting it in the mailbox, and not knowing if it got there until you received a letter in return was a typical scenario not that long ago.
Today, technology has taken us so far that with the touch of a few keys on our computers we can send our out of town loved ones an animated greeting card through the “air” from our computer to theirs, at no cost to anyone. So take advantage of the technology of today, and send those you miss a holiday ecard, starting with Halloween!
