I have always only sent cards to a few special people overseas and a very few here in Oz.They are always Festive Season cards,not Christmas cards. I used to make all of my own and this year I am not able to do this,which s very sad for me. My cards were actually my special gifts to whoever I sent them to. I have actually written 4 cards today,but of those only one will go in the postal system. The others are for my brilliant doctors and my pharmacist!
So,to each and all of you who I have not yet met in person...Season's Greetings and have a lovely Festive period.....
Personally I prefer to send email cards but my husband is adamant that he sends the old-fashioned kind in the post. So we have sent most of those now, all the international ones have definitely gone and most of the others too. This is actually quite late for us - we usually try to get our cards out by the end of November, if only to remind people of our correct address as we have moved so many times recently that cards are often sent to the wrong country!
I send calendars to special friends both within Australia and overseas. I sent them particularly early this year as I was about to travel for a month and was not going to be home much before Christmas. I hope folk on my Christmas letter list are not perturbed by the fact that I sent a very short emailed greeting this year due to time pressures.
As itís really 6 months & 3 & 1/2 weeks to Xmas, no I havenít. Every year I say Iím going to start earlier, but I donít. I send shop bought ones to my friends, & hand made ones to my parents friends, although there's only a handful of them left now. I donít send cards to my siblings, & they donít send cards to each other either! So my cards donít get posted until the last week!
Haven't sent Xmas cards for many a year! Waste of time, effort & money.
Prefer to phone & actually talk to the person.
Why bother sending cards when they're the same people with whom you've been in contact all year?
My wife has spent hours sending off Cards to overseas , and then locally.
She is fantastic at sending family and friends cards as it means so much to her, I am getting lazy and sending email's of cards I have created.
