Re: Anyone still mailing out Christmas cards?

I always send cards to the people that I will not see over the Holidays.  This year so many people are isolated (me included) I feel it is more important than ever to send them.  I always add a personal note.  

 

I use the cards I receive as part of my Christmas decor.

I will not go into a store and look at single cards that who knows who touched. I decided   to buy boxed cards. I was on the internet looking around for reasonably priced really nice cards. I came across a site called fuzzy wuzzy designs. A box of 10 cards is $24. The cards are well worth it. The owner of this small company has an incredible story.

Re: Anyone still mailing out Christmas cards?

I try every year to cut back and it always seems that the people I take off my list are the first ones to send me a card. I have some arthritis in my thumb joint and it gets painful to write and address cards. I always write a note in the cardbecause I don't like getting cards without a little message. I usually send around forty cards so I'd better get started since I can only write a few each day.

Yes, we are still sending out Christmas cards. We don’t send out as many as we used to. We also receive fewer and fewer each year.

I mail one to my father, out of a sense of duty.  That's the extent of it, except that I also purchase a card for the husband.

We still send photo cards to keep up with friends and family.  We write a message on each card.  I think that we probably send about 40 cards.

Each year I am reminded about my MIL saying, " I don't know what is going on with my friends and family anymore. "  When I asked if she sent out cards to THEM anymore, she would say, " Of course not! " Even in this age of texting and emails, I still enjoy sending and receiving cards.

Re: Anyone still mailing out Christmas cards?

We do not live near any of our extended family (don't have much anyway). I send a photo card to family members and very few friends each year -- probably 10-12 cards total. What I think is a waste of money is giving cards to immediate family members. I would never buy a card to give to my husband or kids at home, for example, unless I had no actual gift/package to present when we open presents (gifting something intangible).
