The very first step a host does is the arrangement of “invitations” which has been changed nowadays, into a term “evites” (e-invitations).
Look back in past thousands of years messages to the honorary guests were sent on a leather parchment or on a paper, written with quill and dark inks. This service was not done by any post office but a horse man fulfilled the task. Many cultures including Chinese, Egyptian, European and Muslims had a traditional style for inviting guests on different occasions ones a year.
After the industrial revolution and invention of different devices for exchanging messages, it became easier to invites a few days before the celebrations. So, people used to enjoy every event with friends and families.
