I do send a letter of yearly highlights...each family member writes their own paragraph. I've been doing this for more than 20 years and collect them in a scrapbook. It's like a journal of our lives. I only send them to friends and relatives who are far away and otherwise wouldn't know what we are doing.

I've not sent Christmas cards for years. I still receive some, and while I appreciate the warm wishes from friends and family, I'd rather have a phone call to catch up with each other.

My Mother makes greeting cards now, it's her main retirement hobby and she is so good at it. I like giving her cards to friends throughout the year. Go Mom!


To our health,

I only send cards to close family, friends and overseas, tried the 'letter of our year thing' but it felt like a skite page so stopped that.

I meet friends for coffee leading up to Christmas and catch up again in the New Year. emoticon emoticon

Every year we take a picture of the kids and make a holiday "photo" card to send in the mail to our families. We don't get to see them very much since they are in a different state. My grandma says she keeps a photo album of just the cards we've made so she can feel like she is seeing them grow up. (I also send her pictures throughout the year and the kids talk to her often.)

I am not sending out as many cards as I used to nor do I receive as many as I used to. But that is fine by me.

I send out e-mails with my seasonal wishes and hand out Christmas cards at work to various people and groups. That works for me. I have received the "what I did this year cards" and always enjoyed my friends synopsis of their past year. Myself, I never have the time or inclination to reciprocate but I always let them know their efforts are valued. Everyone's traditions are unique and interesting. emoticon

Just going through my Christmas cards list and was wondering how many of us still send out cards. Each year there seem to be less and less. Last year I tried sending Christmas messages through the email with a picture in the email, not quiet the same. I have never been one for writing pages of all the things that happended during the year re our family like some people do. I still receive a couple of them. I would be interested to know what you do re Christmas cards and or notes or letters.

Have a great week.
