Free Christmas eCards

Looking for a way to send greetings for free this Christmas? Did you wait too long to send out your Christmas cards and now you don't have time to send them by snail mail? Well, no worries, you can send free digital ecards to everyone with an email address.

A quick Google search will turn up a ton of results but here are a few to save you the time and trouble. I have no affiliation with any of them.

Trail Canada - As the name implies, this is a Canadian site. Here, you can access free Canadian winter and snow scene e-cards. There is no mention, nor is there a category for Christmas in Canada but folks in foreign lands might enjoy a glimpse of the True North Strong and Free. You can also express specific holiday wishes in your text message that goes along with the card.

Hallmark Christmas and Holiday E-Cards - There are only a few freebies here but everyone knows the quality that Hallmark offers. I'm sure all of your recipients would enjoy these.

My Fun Cards - Lots of free digital greetings here. The downside is that when you click on the big green button, it wants to install on your hard drive. Please note that I have NOT used this site and cannot vouch for any part of it. You probably want to do a little checking around before downloading this, do some due diligence to determine whether or not it is safe.

HP Creative Studio - This one is a little different but I trust the HP brand and site, so figured it was worth mentioning. There's lots of selection, all free, however they are for printing via your printer. The site gives you the option of just using their Christmas designs, or importing your own personal photos. Add a message and print. Simple as that. I suppose you could do that then scan and email the results to the people on your Christmas card list.

eGreetings - There appears to be a pretty good variety on this site. You're sure to find something for everyone, and at no charge.

123 Greetings - Another site offering good variety. The cards that I peeked at were animated with music, quite nice for freebies, I have to say.

Well, there's half a dozen sites to get you started. Have fun finding the perfect one. Heck, if you're strapped for time, you can even send your cards on Christmas Eve. That's the beautiful thing about digital cards. The fact that they're free Christmas ecards is a wonderful bonus, too.
