Sweet Kansas City Hallmark Cookie Exchange Tradition As Greeting Card Industry Crumbles



This really sweet clip profiles the Hallmark Cookie Exchange tradition . . .



A bit of description from KCUR ...

"Since the mid-1960's, Hallmark Cards Inc. employees, past and present, and their spouses, have gathered each year - not for an exchange of greeting cards, but of cookies . . . Donna Moore, a former Hallmark employee, started with the company in 1962. She recalls how the event became an annual tradition, mostly for women."

Take a good look at this tradition because it's near the last days as social niceties and human interaction give way to 3d printing and selfies.

More in a bit . . .

Now isn't that better than real benefits? Get me another drink Pedro. And let me see you play with yours again when you bring the drink.

Cards and snail mail are going to stick around. Unless the NSA decides they want to start opening and photocopying copying everyone's mail and cards.

Nice waste of company time. I am a Hallmark`er working my ass off and these jokers are goofing around baking cookies. No wonder this company is going down the tubes.

Thats It! Hallmark should make cookies and sell cookie dough at HiVee. Of course like everything else Hallmark makes few will buy the overpriced shit.
