It's that time of year again! Ahh, the refreshing Christmas breeze, discounts at retail stores, family dinners and gifts galore. A big part of the season also involves sending Christmas cards to family and friends all over the world. These days, email has perhaps become the more popular option but, really, an actual card with a hand-written message still has a far more personal feel.

If you're looking to convey that heartfelt message of love to friends and family this season, you're better off opting for a traditional greeting card. The best part is, you can purchase a truly authentic Jamaican Christmas card from The National Gallery in Kingston.

The gallery is offering two lines of cards this year. One line features images of contemporary works of art and the other features more traditional artwork.

The contemporary line showcases artwork created by artists who were showcased in the Gallery's recent Young Talent V exhibition, while the traditional line incorporates the works of artists, such as like Osmond Watson and Colin Garland. The cards are available with or without greetings and start from as low as $100 retail. The price is even less for wholesale shoppers. For more information, contact The National Gallery of Jamaica at 922-1561/3.
