Why Thank You Day Is So Important

Jul 24, 2008
Free e-cards have changed the way we now thank, remind, congratulate, and sow our condolences to people. This year you too could celebrate thank you day by sending a free e-card, to friends and family alike. Free e-cards are rapidly growing in popularity, and it is now becoming uncommon not to receive at least one or two a year.

There are a few main reasons why free e-cards have become so popular, the main one being that they are totally free, no matter how you personalize your free e-card or how far you have to send it, it will always be free. So you could send your e-card across the world for no extra cost.

Gratitude is one of our most fundamental human emotions. Think back over this past week and try to count just how many times you've thanked someone for something they've done for you, a compliment, gift, support, the list goes on and on.

However, in spite of how often you may hear someone, or yourself, say thank you, showing appreciation for certain things or people in your life is sometimes difficult and not done often enough.

It may only provide a slight reassurance to the people in your life but even the smallest tokens of appreciation, such as a verbal thank you, are important in letting someone know how much what they do affects and touches you.

International Thank You Day is the ideal opportunity to recognize and demonstrate the extent of your gratefulness to the people who make your days what they are.

The promoters of this holiday would like everyone to participate by sharing their deepest thanks with the people who deserve them. Each year, January 11th is marked as International Thank You Day to remind and make it easier for you to do just that!

Whether it's saying thanks, sending a thank you note, or digging deep within you for the strength to let someone know how much their constant support and help in the most dire of life's circumstances means to you, it is crucial to actually do so instead of expecting that your gratitude can be telepathically transmitted.

How you put your grateful feelings into words is a matter of choice.

Send a thank you card, better yet, draw and personally deliver a card, flowers, or a basket of fruit, pastries, and muffins.

Dedicate a part of your day to remembering and making certain to address the people you owe your thanks. If you'd like to commemorate this day more officially, you can even organize a thankfulness-themed party for your office, classroom, or family, friends, and neighbors, during which you can publicly honor everyone who has contributed to your happiness and success.

The date January 11th was chosen because the promoters believe that the numerical combination 1/11 forces people to consider themselves and the people most important to them more thoroughly than other dates.

Millions of people send free e-cards each year, I love to send them. All my friends and family now receive free e-cards for their birthdays, and I can also claim that I am doing my bit for the environment, as no trees need be felled to make the cards.
