Christmas Card Time

Tis the season I take time out of my busy schedule to sit a write out my Christmas cards. 




This somehow became my job. Every year I question if I should send them out or not. I mean, do people really care? Do they just toss them in the trash or do they display them? I used to mail out about fifty but my list has dwindled down to about thirty. 

See my rule is, if I dont get a card in return after two years I mark those people off the list unless its imediate family, they will get one as long as Im welling. Then of course there are former work employees and church members that are no longer in the picture. There is also the ones that have passed away. Some of those are the ones I enjoyed writing too the most. 

My husband and I enjoy getting cards in the mail and pick on each other on who gets to open the next one. I display them all on a hallway door and occasionally stop and read them over and over. We judge which one is the prettiest and which one is the ugliest etc. sometimes it makes us talk about the sender and how grateful we are for friends. So, yes we enjoy every one of them.

Its nice to get a real letter instead of emails or text which is what everything seems to be going to. It lets you know that someone took some time to think about you.

Do you send Christmas cards? How do you display the ones you receive?

  1. Thsi year we did cut back. Sherry used the same rule to cull the ones who are dropping off. The ones we get sit on the dash and end table in the motor home. I love beautiful cards and the messages they bring.
    I do understand the reluctance to mail cards now.
