Christmas Ecards

Well, the elections are finally over, and you know what that means: it’s time to get ready for Christmas!

It seems like we’ve gotten to a point in our society where the period of time between holidays is counted in shopping days, rather than calendar days.  It’s easy to get lost, and feel weighed down, by all the stresses that preparing for the holidays entails.  You have to buy gifts, you have to wrap them, you have spend gas money going back and forth from home to the mall.  You have to order that special present online and hope it arrives by Christmas, and you have to hope you don’t go seriously, seriously over budget.

 At gotfreecards.com, we’re doing our small part to make the holidays just a little less stressful.  Now, instead of adding the buying, addressing and mailing out of holiday cards to your already-overbooked to-do list, you can check out our free e-cards.  Our animated free christmas e-cards don’t require that you make a trip to the department store, and all you need to do is give us the e-mail address of whomever you want to send them to.  It’s that easy!

Keeping a Sense of Humor

By ecards

Black Friday Ecard

Black Friday Ecard

As we gear up for the holidays, one important factor to maintain in our lives is a sense of humor. This Thanksgiving, send a FREE e-card to your friends instead of wasting hours surfing You-Tube for that eerie turkey video. Fun e-cards are a quick and easy way to put a smile on anyone’s face!

Two of our most popular funny e-cards are “Thanksgiving Rally for Turkeys” and “Black Friday.”

In “Thanksgiving Rally for Turkeys,” we are reminded that even the source of the popular Thanksgiving feast has one thing to celebrate: Vegetarians! A gaggle of turkeys carrying banners and signs show their support for herbivores. This e-card is perfect for those who abstain from meat, as well as that friend or family member who is notorious for scarfing every last morsel from their plate.

“Black Friday” cleverly reminds us that Thanksgiving is the predecessor to a whirlwind shopping adventure on what has become known as Black Friday. While many people spend Thanksgiving relaxing with family and friends, others use the newspaper ads and online specials to plan a shopping route to round up great holiday deals! Do you know anyone who would rather spend Thanksgiving with the circulars than the turkey? Remind them of the importance of family and friends with a super e-card!

Holiday festivities can be hectic and dramatic. Remind everyone you know to keep it light with a funny card from gotfreecards.com!

Thanksgiving Less Stress

By ecards

Thanksgiving Ecards

Thanksgiving Ecards

Every holiday is stressful.  But especially recently, too-high gasoline prices have added to that stress.  Some—myself included—have even forgone traveling on the holidays the past couple years, electing instead to have a quiet meal alone, and then call family members who live far away to wish them well.

Even though the reasons may be due to the overall struggling economy, gas prices, as you no doubt have noticed, have dropped sharply in the past several weeks.  I don’t know about you, but I’m spending about half as much money on gas now as I was a year ago.  Of course this means a little extra money in the wallet, but it also means we can afford, at least a little more easily, to travel long distances to see our families on the holidays.

So this Thanksgiving, don’t worry about the economy for at least one day.  For at least one day, just be thankful that it’s a little easier this time to make a long-distance trip out of town, to see friends and loved ones who lived far away.

Of course, even though you’re saving a little money, that doesn’t mean you should spend needlessly, either.  One of those needless expenses is overpriced greeting cards from the department store.  At gotfreecards.com, our free e-cards won’t cost you a dime, and all you have to do is enter an e-mail address to send it on its way.  No stamps or envelopes needed for our animated e-cards!

Thanksgiving-The Hidden Holiday

By ecards

Free Thanksgiving Ecards

Free Thanksgiving Ecards

Thanksgiving often gets lost in the shuffle of late-in-the-year holidays.  Hidden between Halloween and Christmas, it’s not unusual to see Thanksgiving as an inconsequential midway point between the other two holidays, rather than the wonderful day it is in its own right.

Don’t get me wrong: I love buying gifts and decorating for Christmas, and there’s still a big part of me that regrets not being able to dress up on Halloween night and go trick-or-treating.  But Thanksgiving has a special place in my heart, and it always will.

Halloween is about being, if for only one evening, something you aren’t.  Thanksgiving celebrates how much we care about each other, just for being who and what we are.  Christmas is a time to buy gifts and make people smile.  On Thanksgiving, the smiles come just from spending time with those you love.

So this Thanksgiving, don’t forget how important the day truly is.  Maybe you can even send your friends and loved ones free ecards from gotfreecards.com.  Our animated e-cards are the perfect ways to say “I love you, and I’m thankful for you being in my life.”

Thanksgiving-“Bucking the Trend”

Thanksgiving is known for turkey, mashed potatoes, and that delicious lumpy gravy your grandmother makes.  Thanksgiving is also known for spending thirty dollars buying the turkey, spending hours in the kitchen, finding a place for out-of-towners to sleep, and the arduous clean-up process that takes hours after dinner is over.

This year, my family is eliminating at least part of the headache.  Spread across three states and five hundred miles, we’re meeting up at a rather central location and enjoying a buffet-style meal at a certain nationally-popular Italian restaurant.  Substituting lasagna for turkey may seem a bit odd, but after the meal, we all get to go back to the hotel, and leave the dirty dishes to someone else—who’s actually getting paid to clean up.

But it’s not just that going out to eat makes everything easier; it’s also that going to a restaurant allows us to reflect on something that’s too often forgotten on Thanksgiving: it’s not about the food, or the cooking, or the headaches.  Thanksgiving is about just that: giving thanks.  On this day, we come together as friends, loved ones and family members, and appreciate all the good blessings this life has given us.

In much the same vein, you can celebrate Thanksgiving by sending free e-cards fromGotFreeCards.com.  Our animated e-cards are an easy, personalized way to celebrate the holiday in its purest sense: doing something small, just to say to something, “I love you, and I’m thankful that you’re in my life.

Thanksgiving- going through the Motions

By ecards

Free Thanksgiving Ecards

Free Thanksgiving Ecards

Everyone knows the routine on Thanksgiving: you get together with family members, some of whom you won’t see again until next Thanksgiving, you all sit around a table, eat a nice dinner, and talk about all the things you’re thankful for.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I sometimes feel like I’m just going through the motions on Thanksgiving.  If you really want to show your loved ones that you’re truly thankful for their being in your lives, why not send them send them free ecards from gotfreecards.com?

Thanksgiving isn’t really one of those holidays that we usually associate with giving cards, so if your friend or family member checks their e-mail and sees that you’ve sent them a free e-card from gotfreecards.com, they’ll know you’re thinking of them—and not just going through the motions.

Listen: it’s not about the money.  It’s about showing people that you truly care—that you truly are thankful for them.

Get Well—Letting People Down

By ecards

Get Well Soon Ecard

Get Well Soon Ecard

I’m one of those people who hates to admit being sick, even more than I hate actually getting sick.  If I wake up feeling nauseous and light-headed with clogged sinuses, I’m much more likely to groan my way to the shower, and then grin-and-bear-it through another day at work, than I am to pick up the phone, call in sick and go back to sleep.

And so on those rare occasions when I actually do decide that I’m too sick to actually leave the house, my friends, family and co-workers know I must be feeling really, really crummy.

If you’re like me, you really feel like a failure on those days: you feel like you’ve let your coworkers down, forcing them to take a larger burden at work; you feel like you’ve let your friends down, having to give up on whatever obligations you may have had to them; and you feel like you’ve let everyone who lives with you down, potentially exposing them to whatever it was that got you sick in the first place.

Times like those, when feeling bad physically combines with feeling down in the dumps emotionally, nothing brings a smile to your face quite like a little reminder that the people you care about are thinking about you, and aren’t angry with you at all.

So how can you show that you care?  Chicken soup’s a good standby, as if just picking up the phone, calling your sick friend or loved, and making sure they’re okay.  Now, you can add to that list free e-cards from GotFreeCards.com.  Our animated e-cards are quick, completely free, and a funny way to put a smile on an ailing friend’s face.  Give it a try!

Free Ecards

By ecards

There comes a time in the calendar year when we start to think about the people who have slipped our minds for one reason or another. All year long there may have been small reminders of them, and we think to ourselves, “Oh, I’ll call them next week.” But next week, and then next month, comes and goes and alas, we have forgotten again. And then – wham! November is here and thus the holiday domino effect: Thanksgiving leads to Christmas leads to New Year’s Eve leads to January and time to put everyone off once again.

We certainly don’t mean to do it, but the hustle and bustle of our to-do-lists can be to blame. So what can we do? Well, since it’s November, it is a time to be thankful for the relationships we are lucky to have, so we can send some “Thank You” ecards to make up for lost time. Or we can send an “I’m sorry” card for all those times we thought about picking up the phone but didn’t. Here at Got Free-eCards there are cards waiting to be sent for these very reasons. And remember, there is someone out there who needs to send you a card too…

Ecards and etiquette

By ecards

Informal offices and casual dressing may be in, but is etiquette on its way out?

Today’s office cubes mix fun with work seamlessly.  You are on first name basis with your CEO. You wear shorts to work, surf the internet, watch TV and work out. At work. With today’s unrestricted casual settings, the mantra is – get the work done on time and have fun along the way. But are we getting carried away with casualness?

Take ecards for example. Sending and receiving ecards on special occasions is common practice. Most people check their emails at work. So ecards also get opened at work.

Ecards cheer you up, make you feel better. But, they could also be distracting. Especially to coworkers. Most offices have an open floor plan. What goes on in one cube is visible and audible in nearby cubes. So, while you are chuckling at a great ‘Knock Knock’ joke ecard or smiling at a funny musical birthday ecard, your colleague in the next cube is probably cringing as he tries to concentrate amidst the racket. The same goes for people talking loudly, using cell phones or playing loud music or video games. Yes, it’s your free time to spend as you please, but, we also need to be considerate of those around us.

We enjoy many perks at work that previous generations did not. But it is our responsibility to use those perks carefully. Why not use headphones, as you open the free ecard? Or use your lunch break to play music or games.

Work place restrictions may be ancient history, but etiquette is timeless. Do you agree?
