Project 365: Feb. 21, 2011 (day052): Dad's Senti Side

Today was a continuation of yesterday's digging into old stuff, pictures, greeting cards, and the like. Today I was able to see that a man (like my Dad) can have a sentimental side. I dug into the box of memorabilia, and found that my Dad had kept most, if not all, of the greeting cards we gave him. Knowing that my Dad has a stone-cold exterior, the sight of those greeting cards kept in his memorabilia box was really touching. :D


  1. Giving and receiving greeting cards is a custom common to many countries and cultures. Special occasions or celebrations of life events such as birthdays, anniversaries, marriage, graduations, and religious holidays are recognized with a card. In the United States alone, 7 billion cards are sold each year, amounting to $7.5 billion in annual sales. The exchange of greeting cards in North America is extremely popular. Nine out of ten households in the US purchase greeting cards. Seasonal cards such as Christmas or Valentines make up half of all sales and everyday cards such as Get Well, Weddings, Anniversaries and Birthdays make up the other half. Learn more:
