Despite the ease of sending Christmas greetings by email or mobile phone text message, the Christmas card is still popular in the Netherlands, Dutch media reported Wednesday.
The Dutch postal company TNT said Tuesday it expects that more than 190 million Christmas wishes will be sent by post this year in the country.
The Netherlands has a population of 16.3 million people.
On average each household will send about 30 cards, and women aged between 35 and 50 will send the most cards, a TNT spokesperson said.
Every day 120 trucks are delivering some 3 million Christmas cards to the TNT Post sorting center in Nieuwegein in central Netherlands. More than 1,000 employees work to process the cards.
