Do you send Christmas cards?
I have to say that one of the best things I love about Christmas is getting cards in the mail.
Oh, I know, there is the mass emails and Facebook greetings that I get from friends, yet there is something really special about getting a card in the mail. In this day and age, there is never anything exciting in the mail. The art of writing a note and putting it in the mail is long gone. Those that do it are very special kinds of people.
I saw this comment on a facebook friend’s status:
“Really trying to put some meaning into this…I needs your help answering this questions…Why do you really send Christmas cards?”
So, first I want to ask, do you send out cards?
I send out Christmas cards with a family picture on it… to a bunch of mismatch of people. My aunts … this is their way of seeing my family at least once a year…
There are some family I send it to…
There are some friends I send it to…
All to say, I love you, miss you and am thinking of you… even if just once a year I take time to show it!
Half of them don’t send cards back… and that’s ok.
I never order cards that say “Merry Christmas” because I know that the likelihood of the cards being mailed on time is very little. I have the best of intentions… yet usually find them being mailed between Christmas and New Years!
It’s the thought that counts, Right?
So, I am asking, do you mail Christmas cards out?
