Considering Christmas Cards

Do you send out Christmas cards? Holiday cards? New Year’s cards?

I always mean to, but I sometimes struggle to get around to it. I am a fan of old-fashioned greeting cards, but photo cards are in style and definitely easier, since the greeting is already on the card–you don’t even have to sign it.


But I feel like I don’t get enough good pictures of all of us–or any pictures of all of us.


And the best pictures I get are never very Christmas-y.


I don’t know. Maybe I’ll send out Christmas cards. Or maybe you’ll have to settle for these.

  1. Adorable! I’m old fashioned too when it comes to sending Christmas cards. Even when times were lean for me as a single Mom, I managed to get it done. I always have a “ritual” – Christmas carols playing, comfy chair by the Christmas tree, a fire in the fireplace. Maybe a cup of hot cocoa or a nice glass of wine. I like to have my envelopes pre-addressed so that I can use this time to add a personal note, especially to those who are far away. That doesn’t always happen, especially when I was working full time. And some years there was just too much going on wth me – too stressed out about things to write a pleasent greeting, so a simple signature would have to do. But, I still sent my cards. I always love getting Christmas cards, but I know today families are busy, and it is the digital age, so your cards are just fine with me! As long as I’m still on your list, I’m happy!
