A look at who writes the messages inside millions of Christmas Cards sent every year

you ever wonder who actually writes them

Christmas just a few weeks away but for

the tiny towns of Leavenworth Kansas and

Lawrence Kansas they've been getting

ready all year Hallmark headquarters

snowmen to life every Christmas card

written right here and we wanted to meet

the writers first heading into this

Hallmark store not to find the Christmas

cards straight to the Christmas aisle

good to see you happy holidays Hallmark

in business since 1910 co-founder JC

Hall just 18 when he traveled from

Nebraska to Kansas City he gets off the

train with a shoebox full of postcards

brother Raleigh they begin making and

selling a new kind of card a greeting
