ERNEST DUDLEY CHASE
reflections on the custom of sending 
Saint Patrick's Day greeting cards ~ 

"Comic and semi-comic post cards were published for those who desired to 
greet one another on 
Saint Patrick's Day long before 
the advent of the greeting card and even after cards for
 other occasions were in constant use.  
It was not until 1912 or 1913 
that the first greeting cards
(in their present form) 
were issued covering Saint Patrick's Day,
 and while many of them were 
comic or 'slap stick' 
the more serious type of 
sentiment came into use"
