  Birthday cards
Sending birthday cards is a very recent tradition which began in the UK about 100 years ago and were originally sent as an apology for not being able to attend a birthday celebration.
  This evolved to the current situation where people send cards anyway, even if they will see the person, and millions are sent every year.
