There comes a time when there are no presents under the tree, no Santa visits and no gathering around the dinner table with generations of family members. What remains are Christmas cards. I love getting them in the mail and hanging them on my cupboards, windows, walls and then saving them for years down the road.
I read a blog today asking if anyone still sends out Christmas cards… and I must say that I do.
I always begin with the Aunts (there’s not many of them left) … then I write cards to my siblings and their families. (Mind you if my parents were still alive they would top the list!)
Then I send out cards to my friends.
I must say that I am stingy about which friends get cards but all in all, if they’re in my address book they will probably get one.
What about you? Do you still send out cards? Would you like one from me? Send me your email address and I’ll be sure to write you, get your post address and send one off from me in sunny Colorado to you … wherever that may be.
I hope you take a moment and read the blog that inspired this post:

I do too Marge…but lately to family and friends out of state. Come visit my blog for a virtual card.
I send out a few holiday cards, but that is it. I took family gifts when we were home for Thanksgiving. Believe it or not, I do receive a few Christmas cards from some non-Jewish friends. I like the custom of sending cards regardless of the occasion.
Yes, I do too. And…. I make every single one. I’ve done this for many years, and people ask to be included in my list. I make approx 200, each one is slightly different, and they are all ‘professional’. I know I’m ‘daft’!
I still send them, although in really difficult years, they may slither from being New Year’s cards to Valentine cards —
But my intentions are good.
I like ’em.
That’s a neat offer, Marge, and I’d take advantage of it, and reply as well (although it’s hardly sunny in Western MA). My e-mail address is email@example.com.
We still get Christmas cards..well my parents do. My dad used to be very diligent about it, now not so much..but he sends out cards for other religious / cultural festivals to those that celebrate it though!
