Halloween Ecards -A Trick or Treat!

Halloween is definitely a holiday that people enjoy planning for, decorating for, and celebrating once a year.  It is a time to enjoy with everyone, and getting people in the spirit of the festive holiday is part of the fun!  What better way than by sending your friends a Halloween “treat”: an animated ecard sent to their email inbox, something they won’t be expecting, but something that is sure to chill them, thrill them, or make them hungry for Halloween candy!  At GotFreeCards, all of the ecards are animated, and the best “treat” of all, they are FREE!  You could of course take time out of your day to head to the store, browse through the selection of Halloween ecards, pay money for the card and postage, put it in the mailbox and hope it gets there in time. But then when will you have time to make your fabulous costume or carve your pumpkin!  A store bought card won’t be animated, it won’t be free, and the recipient won’t be able to forward it to all of their friends to see.  At GotFreeCards it will, and they can!  Let GotFreeCards assist you in making this year’s Halloween the best yet, by getting your friends in the Halloween spirit with animated ecards.  It’s our “treat”!

Friendship Ecards – Happy Monday!

It is time! Time to put down whatever you are doing, time to choose a free animated ecard, and send it to someone…NOW! It takes only a few seconds, but will give your recipient countless seconds of joy.  These days we are hard pressed for time, and though we hate to admit it, most of us tend to only think of our friends when we are in the car, with nothing more to do than call them on our cell phones.  But as soon as we reach our destination, we end the conversation and forget about our friends until we get in the car again.  We don’t want to admit it, we say “nah, not me”, but this is the reality we live in.  GotFreeCards.com knows that everyone is in a time crunch, that no one has time to be inconvenienced in order to do something nice for someone else.  Which is why this website exists: to provide a quick and easy route to reach out to your friends, while entertaining everyone at the same time.  So go to the animated Friendship ecards on this website, choose the “Happy Monday” ecard (because sometimes every day feels like a Monday), have a good laugh and send it to your friend’s email inbox.  Nothing lost, but a whole lot gained, and a friendship maintained.

Culture Brings The World Closer

It’s a known fact that cultures around the world share a lot in common, despite their contrasts. Many traditions & beliefs have similar roots & significance across the globe.

Take Halloween for example. Do you know how similar Halloween traditions are to Asian Indian customs practiced during the lunar months of Ashwin-Karthika, that happen to fall around October?

People in the west believe that Halloween symbolizes the return of spirits to the earth. In India, it is believed that spirits of the elders in the family visit during the Ashwin month. In some parts of India, people perform special rituals for an entire fortnight to honor the presence of the elderly spirits. Halloween is the time when people hang lanterns & decorate the front porch with glowing candles, lights, scarecrows & dolls. In India, the festival of Dusssehra falls during the same time. This festival is marked by lighting rows of earthen lamps or ‘Diyas’ in front of houses. The highlight of Halloween is kids in costumes going from door to door collecting candies & sweet treats. During Dussehra or Durga Puja, children in many parts of India go from house to house, dressed in fine clothes, singing devotional songs, collecting goodies & treats. People in some parts arrange their best dolls and collectibles in a special staircase style display for friends and neighbors to admire.

The astounding similarities go on. Around the world, there are countless examples like these. Perhaps, it just goes to show that the world is indeed round and people across the planet share more in common than they realize.

Do you know of any such cultural parallels?

Everyone wants to feel loved

Birthday – a time to look in the mirror

What does your birthday mean to you?

Sure, there’s the celebration, the wishes, the ecards, the gifts and the party. No doubt, a birthday is a time to celebrate your life with your loved ones and be showered with gifts and wishes.

But after the last guest has left, your birthday still isn’t over.

For most of us, a birthday is also a time to collect our thoughts. At some point on our birthday, we find ourselves pondering over the course life has taken. Many set personal and professional goals for the coming year on their birthdays. Some look back at the year gone by to reevaluate their priorities. Some feel encouraged by the progress. Some have regrets. We think about the decisions in the past year – good and bad – and how they have changed our lives. A birthday is a perfect time to resolve to quit a bad habit or cultivate a good one.

A birthday represents a milestone. Each year, you turn a corner and are a changed person. You have learnt more, seen more, experienced more of life. How do we consciously ensure these changes reflect in the way we lead the rest of the year and our lives?

A birthday is a reminder that we have been given the gift of yet another year of life. Which is why we celebrate it.  But while the memory of the celebrations may fade away, the moments we spend alone, reflecting and planning the road ahead, stay with us and shape our lives.

So, when you look in the mirror this birthday, what will you see?

An ecard, a paper greeting card, or …nothing?

What is the best way to send a long distance wish?

A paper greeting card evokes powerful emotions in many. It can be felt, held in one’s hands and carries a personal, handwritten message that can be read over and over again. Paper card lovers believe this experience is the closest alternative to actually being there in person.

Meanwhile, most of us have embraced ecards for their convenience and simplicity. After all, they convey the same message. Only they do it instantly. For free.  Besides, not everyone sees the sentiments attached to a greeting card. To many, a wish is simply that. And nothing more.

However, there are some who think that occasions like Mother’s Day, Friendship Day etc have been blown out of proportion by companies selling greeting cards and gifts who profit the most from marketing these concepts. Many refrain from sending cards for this very reason, claiming that they do not need a special day to wish their mother or best friend. They do not want to fall into the marketing trap of greeting card giants. But there are those who argue that it’s nice that loved ones who are otherwise taken for granted are acknowledged and appreciated at least once a year, on the pretext of these occasions.

How about you? Do you love the smell and feel of a paper card? Are you an ecarder? Or do you think actions speak louder than words & that greeting cards are a waste of time or money or effort?
