Christmas Cards Or Not....

OK~ There's been a lot of chatter on Facebook lately as to sending out Christmas Cards.  I have ran across the following statements:


  • "It seems like a lot of work when I already know what is going on all because of Facebook." Now, you all know that I love Facebook as much as anyone on the planet, but I still think it's nice to send out a Christmas Card.

  • "I'm just not in the spirit!" Yes, I can totally relate. I do believe that in 2008, I did not send out any Christmas cards. I just didn't feel like it! I seriously never thought I would feel that way.

  • "Does anybody really care what my family has been doing?" Yes...Yes...Yes...We do care! I personally love to read what families have been up to the past year~ send me your letter, pictures, cards, etc....I want to see what you've been up to! And you know what- I really don't care if you have already posted the same pic on Facebook....It's wonderful that you took the time to send my family and I a card!

  • "Why should I send someone a card when they don't send me one?" Yikes...Do we really think this way?  Of course we do, we are all busy human beings! Decide how you want to make up your Christmas card list...A great alternative to sending out your Christmas Cards may be to send greetings on the 4th of July- you could start something fun and new! Since most people don't send cards out this time of year, you may feel less stressed...Just a thought! Wouldn't you like to get  greeting card from "Sue", in July, that resides in another state?

And it appears that the USPS could use our business...So, it's time to start prepping those Christmas Cards and enjoying the festivities of the season! So...Are you sending out Christmas Cards this year? I will be........and I send to those that have sent to me in the past and those that I really want to stay connected with! And of course, we all have those relatives that we "have" to send to~ it's nice to know that we can make someone else's day. Christmas is all about sharing...So- Send out those cards and know that someone will smile when they receive a Christmas Card from you in 2011! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. I'll be sending out ours! I love sending them and receiving them. I do however get a lot less cards than I used to get. 10 years ago I probly got around 200+ last year, we might have gotten 20. Doesn't stop me from sending them though!
