Christmas Cards? Follow-up

I do have to say that I agree with Sue J. and Kat about enjoying getting things in the mail besides bills and junk. I also agree that with all of the technology these days, receiving something with a human touch is comforting and more personal. I can be resistant to technology and prefer the "old fashioned" way of doing some things. It took me quite a while to get on board with Facebook. (My husband still refuses to do that.) And I really don't think I'll ever "Twitter".

So will I send Christmas cards this year? The jury is still out. As I've furthered my walk with God, I think I see Easter as the more important holiday. (I don't know if "important" is the correct word, but you know what I mean.) Don't get me wrong...I love Christmas!!! (And, unfortunately, some of the trappings that come with it.) I guess I feel Easter is a better time to remind others of what Christ has done for us.

Hi Leslie -

For me, the issue comes down to economics. The cost of postage has skyrocketed over the past several years.

I've cut way back and incorporated some email cards.

Blessings,
Susan :)

I love your thinking. I enjoy receiving Christmas cards and keeping up with folks that way. But I don't get mad if someone doesn't send one. I do a newsletter now that I have kids to let people know what's going on.

Well, if you do not send out Christmas cards, at least you have reasoned things through. I usually get run over by events taking up by time and then realize that cards did not go out -- but it was not by choice. (I have sometimes sent them in January, anyway.)

Merry Christmas!
