For free Christmas greeting cards that you can send not just by email, but to Facebook, Twitter and several other options, 2000 Greetings is the site of choice. 2000 Greetings offers a lovely selection of free ecards for Christmas, although this Web site has more ads than the sites reviewed thus far. Scroll down the 2000 Greetings’ home page and select Christmas Cards from the left hand menu.

However, most of the free ecards for Christmas are delightful, and before long you are sure to find one you like.

But most are very beautiful. If you are happy with the look of your free Christmas ecard, scroll down to the “click to send this card” hyperlink.
IMPORTANT NOTE: There are two drawbacks to free Christmas ecards that you should bear in mind. First, when the free ecards Web sites send a notification to your recipient that you have sent them an ecard for Christmas, your recipient’s mail server may treat this notification as junk mail. Testing this problem, the writer of this article encountered it only twice, with Regards and 2000 Greetings. Second, as with all ecards, both those that you pay for and those that are free, ecards for Christmas arrive as an email, advising the recipient that you have sent them a greeting card, which they can view by click the URL provided. In short, the email notification is far from festive, but the free Christmas ecards themselves more than make up for this minor flaw.
A very merry Christmas to you and yours!
