Easter postcards are a modified form of regular postcards and are ideal for sending to others during the Easter celebrations. Mostly, in this day of the Internet it is normal to use e-cards instead of the traditional postcards and so it pays to learn more about what the Easter postcards really are. In fact, the earliest instances of sending Easter postcards date back to the end of the nineteenth century when people sent such postcards to friends and to other family members and relatives.
Easter Postcards Started Off As Monochrome Cards
The year 1989 saw just a few Easter postcards being sent though since that time the numbers have increased considerably and in all parts of the world as well. What’s more, the earliest Easter postcards were nothing but monochrome cards though a few used colors as well. In the center of these early postcards you would normally find an egg and the front of the postcards were generally empty.
There was space left there for senders to write words of greeting since the back of the postcards were reserved for the address as well as for stamping. In the year 1905 post offices in countries such as Germany and Austria created Easter postcards with two equal halves with the right half being reserved for the address as well as for stamping while the left side could be used to send a message.
Some five years later, the early monochrome Easter postcards were gradually replaced by colored ones and the Easter Bunny that symbolized fruitfulness was also included, and before the First World War the Germans were the biggest users of Easter postcards.
However, when the First World War began the children depicted in early Easter postcards were soon replaced by soldiers and the appearance of the cards too underwent a change – in the form of more military depictions. This was when Easter postcards were the most popular because after the end of the First World War the numbers of Easter postcards began to decline and the reason for this decline was the competition offered by emails and by telephony.
