Which Countries Celebrate Christmas? A Guide to Sending Christmas eCards to Businesses

With the Christmas holiday season approaching, have your thoughts turned to sending Christmas wishes to your international clients and business partners? It is probably no surprise that across the globe, the Christmas holidays aren’t celebrated in the same way, or celebrated at all in some countries. 

With this in mind, you may not be entirely sure if your international clients celebrate Christmas or what kind of holiday (if any) they observe.

Here at eCO2 Greetings, we have created this handy guide to help you identify which countries do and do not observe Christmas. 

We recommend calling upon this comprehensive list before you send out your Christmas wishes to ensure you don’t miss the mark.

Did you know that there are many money-saving and environmental benefits to sending a Christmas eCard rather than a traditional, physical card? 

The benefits of sending a holiday eCard 

Benefit 1: save time and money by sending an eCard over a traditional Christmas card

If you choose to send an eCard from eCO2 Greetings, you do not need to spend money designing and printing or buying physical Christmas cards. You can also avoid a trip to the post office to purchase multiple stamps, which can be expensive.

When you choose an eCard, you can also bypass having to manually write out Christmas cards or stick down printed signatures. This also helps avoid unnecessary wastage due to messy ink splodges and spelling mistakes.

Sending corporate eCards is also an incredible way to quickly and efficiently send Christmas wishes to clients that are based overseas.

Win, win!

Benefit 2: your eCard will reach its recipient as soon as you send it!

When you send an eCard, long gone are the days of waiting for the post to be collected and hoping your Christmas wish arrives on time. 

With eCO2 Greetings, you’ll never miss an occasion again. Send a personalised eCard directly to your client whenever you wish and they will receive it immediately.

Benefit 3: Christmas eCards are a green and sustainable option

Many traditional Christmas cards are unrecyclable and end up in landfill sites. This is especially true if they contain glitter, foil or plastic materials. 

By sending a holiday eCard, you can help reduce your carbon footprint and help positively support the environment. Not only is this a great way to build on your own sustainable efforts, but it also reduces waste for your recipient.

Sustainability and making better choices for the environment is something we devote our business towards. Did you know? eCO2 Greetings plants ten trees for every eCard purchased! 

We are proud to support the American Forests’ Resilient Forests Program, and you can read more about our social responsibility efforts here.

Benefit 4: holiday eCards can be personalised to suit your clients and your client relationship

You have creative control over the holiday eCard you choose to send. You can search for Christmas themes such as snowy vistas, Christmas jumpers, or Santa Claus, to name but a few of the choices available. 

Then, add a personalised message that will show your client that this Christmas wish was dedicated to them. 

Within our range of Christmas eCards, you can also add music to your greeting if you want to. When you send a holiday eCard the possibilities are endless…
