Easter traditions include chocolate eggs, bunnies and hot cross buns, but when did sending cards become one?
With Easter coming up mid-April, most people's attentions will be turning to preparations for the Easter holiday, and the longer school holiday break. Not to forget that here in New Zealand it coincides with the seasonal change to winter.
Going to church, giving chocolate eggs, enjoying hot cross buns - Easter traditions are many and much-loved. It’s a tradition that appears to have stemmed from stationery suppliers noting that people sent blank cards, particularly from Catholic countries such as Poland, so they began to dedicated sections for bunny and egg bedecked cards. There’s no specific date for when people started sending cards, but it appears to have caught on here too with people requesting more cards each year.
We have a great selection here at Live Wires from the religious, Museums & Galleries, to the more traditional bunnies and eggs from Madam Treacle, Roger La Borde and Rachel Ellen. Order now to be sure you’ll have them in stock for Easter.
