Have you ever wanted to send a message to someone with just the perfect sentiment, but couldn’t find the words? Or you couldn’t say what you wanted in less than the 160 characters of an SMS message?
Believe it or not, there are many places on the web that offer pre-written messages you can simply cut and paste, then send off to unsuspecting family and friends. If you Google just a little, you’ll find that these already composed messages are gaining ground as a greeting card substitute too.
As someone who always forgets to get the holiday cards in the post, I see the allure of sending holiday greetings via SMS. They’re fast, easy, yet potentially just as heartfelt as whatever is written inside a traditional greeting card. So I looked around and found a few I thought worthy of sharing – and perhaps sending.
The ones I’ve chosen come from SMS4smile.com. It has all kinds of message types from jokes to “adult” messages (I didn’t click on that so don’t ask me what it means). I read through the holiday ones and decided these could be what I send out today on Christmas eve. That’s usually when I realise I’ve forgotten to send out the real cards!
