Re: Anyone still mailing out Christmas cards?

No, haven't sent cards in at last 10 years.  I'd rather call or email.  I've gotten a LOT of cards from charities looking for a donation.  Hopefully, next year one of the local organizations will be accepting these cards.  They aren't this year.

Just an FYI for those not aware, Hallmark cards are available at Dollar Tree for a buck each. Some of them are only 50 cents. They are the exact same Hallmark cards sold everywhere!



Thank you!

Re: Anyone still mailing out Christmas cards?

Agree OP - that's why I stopped sending cards.  Cost of postage just to be dumped in the trash.  Not a guilty bone in my body about my decision. 

 

E-Mail or call your loved ones - we didn't have that available back in the 40's - 50's  and even the sixties.

This year, just my immediate family.  It's getting to be a chore as I get older.  I will send if I receive, but I won't start it.

I mailed out 22 cards the day before Thanksgiving!!!  I like to write a personal meaningful note in my cards and let them know I appreciate them....

Re: Anyone still mailing out Christmas cards?

I do.  The list is dwindling over the years. I have a couple of people to whom I will send a card every week on the lead up to Christmas.

Re: Anyone still mailing out Christmas cards?

Yes, I still send out a few. Probably 10 or so this year.

Re: Anyone still mailing out Christmas cards?

Maybe.

 

The family photo taken at the beginning of October came out Meh. Everyone looked OK except for me, so obviously that's a No Go. We are having our Christmas early this year, so we will try again to get a good photo. If we are successful I will have them printed and sent right out or maybe just post on my social media page. If not I will send out just a few cards to elderly relatives and a few friends.

Only to those who guilt me by sending a card first.
