Christmas Cards appeared in the United States of America in the late 1849's, but were very expensive and most people couldn't afford them. In 1975, a printer - Louis Prang started mass producing cards. In 1915, John C. Hall and two of his brothers created Hallmark Cards, who are still one of the biggest card makers today!
In more recent decades, the sending of physical Christmas cards has declined somewhat because of the widespread use of electronic mail.
However, many people still choose to send real Christmas cards, with close to 2 billion Christmas cards being sent each year in America alone.
