Send a card to a friend day (Feb. 7th)
February 7th is Send a card to a friend day. Seems like the perfect occasion for splitcoasters to send cards for no reason!
So will you?

I was thinking about it. I'm sure this was started by a major card company, but who needs them anyway! I'll probably send a card!

Yes, I will! I've been wanting to send some cards to my friends, so this will be the perfect "excuse"!

I never heard of this. Is there a website somewhere that talks about it. Just curious.

I couldn't find any history behind this day, but it is listed in a few calendars on greeting card sites. whatfriendsenjoy.com, 123greetings.com, greetingcards.com, etc.

Those sites are for eCards though so don't use them. Make a card - they are SO much better! lol ;)

I got my act together and sent out a few cards for no other reason than it was send a card day!

I've never heard of "send a card to a friend day." But I did mail a birthday card this morning, and I'm hoping to work on some more cards tonight.

I hope you all sent out your cards!!! we'll have to come up w/a new one for next week.

I sent one to my Mom - an early valentine. Didn't realize it was Send a Card to a Friend Day.

I have never heard of this! I like the idea...it encourages us to send cards. Happy mail is always a good thing!

I need to be sending out more cards...sometimes I feel like the plumber with broken plumbing...a card maker with no cards to send!!!

I just barely saw this! I didn't even know such a day existed.

I didn't know about this, but i send cards to my friends for no reason other that
1. they like my cards (which is great)
2. allows me to create even more

My work friends and i do a lunch once a month and i always make them a little gift and a card, they always look forward to my "latest creation" this month it was a accordian book with painted dominos as the cover and just a friendship stamp and sayings inthe book. and always wrapped in something cute. big hits, makes my friends very happy, I guess all in all it just lets them know i appreciate them.

I would have sent to all my friends had I known... :(

I send cards on the birthdays and anniversaries of loved ones, as well as when people I care about are sick or grieving. I also send cards when someone comes to mind, and I think they might like a card.

I do not send cards because Hallmark or some other marketer says to.
