Christmas is around the corner and I think you might want to send your relatives, friends or special ones some sort of Christmas greetings. In the past time, people tend to make Christmas cards and send them through snail mail. However, in this modern time, we are benefited from the advantage of the Internet. We can create something new and be the first one to lead the trend. We seldom or even no longer make paper Christmas greeting cards. We can now create a Christmas video and throw our concerns and greetings into the video. Compared to the old-fashioned paper cards, greeting videos contains more emotions that characters cannot express.
