Most Expensive Christmas Card

Did you know the world's most expensive Christmas card is not covered in diamonds, as you would imagine.  It is a Christmas card created in the 1840s by an Englishman called John Calcott Horsley.  When auctioned in Devizes, Wiltshire in 2001, it fetched £20,000.

It is considered to be the world's first Christmas card.  One thousand were made and sold for a shilling each.  Only 12 of these cards are still in existence.
