Christmas Cards 2012 Are A Changing

OK~ We have received one Christmas card so far. I am wondering how much longer the tradition of sending out Christmas cards will be in existence. I remember talking about this in 2011 and here I am talking about it again in 2012.

Christmas Card 2012

2012 brought a huge change in how we all connect. We are now connected through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and E-Mail. More and more people hopped aboard these social media channels in 2012 than any other year in history. If someone knows that statistic, I would love to hear it!

I will send out Christmas cards this year, as I do feel there is a benefit in sending them out. I enjoy addressing the cards and looking at all the different states they will travel to. I know, sounds kind of strange; but that is how I am.

2012 also brought the explosion of the tablets and smart phones. These two unique pieces of technology allow us to stay connected anywhere and everywhere. Which leads me to think that those of the next generation will not see the value of sending a card.

We discussed on All In An Iowa Mom's Day on Facebook if today's younger people will even know how to address a card in the future. And the costs of stamps, does that play into people not sending cards? All I know that times are a changing.

Hey, I love change and welcome it. I do know that the older I get, the less accepting I am to "some" things changing. I love to receive cards in all shapes and forms. E-Mail, Kisseo offers a nice app on Facebook, Instagram photos could be sent as your year in review, and then there is Facebook itself- a simple status update wishing your friends a Merry Christmas! Any of these work for me....But, there is just something about sending and receiving a card. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. I also send out a few cards but not to many maybe 15 I remember my mother used to have a list a mile long with a stack to mail out and eventually the cards just basically stop going out and coming in. It's crazy how things change. People just don't send them out anymore. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you Sara :)
