A Christmas card is a greeting card sent as part of the traditional celebration of Christmas in order to convey between people a range of sentiments related to Christmastide and the holiday season. Christmas cards are usually exchanged during the weeks preceding Christmas Day by many people including some non-Christians in Western society and in Asia. There are innumerable variations on this greeting, many cards expressing more religious sentiment, or containing a poem, prayer, Christmas song lyrics or Biblical verse ; others focus on the general holiday season with an all-inclusive "Season's greetings". A Christmas card is generally commercially designed and purchased for the occasion.
