Christmas card shopping

Do you still send out cards via "snail mail"? Are your cards all done?

I'm being a grinch this year and not sending any - hope that doesn't make me a bad person.

I was in the mood to send cards this year and yes, they are fini!

Great shot, Lowell although a bit scary all the old lady pants. LOL!

RedPat said...

I still send some and they are all gone.
No I couldn't imagine living in one of these new condos 50 stories high. An old factory near ground level I can handle.

Jack said...

Yup. Many. With a letter, too. Including photos.

Randy said...

I send a few and they've all arrived at their destinations. Must be warm there.

We always buy our cards around December 27th, for the following Christmas. It's shocking how much the prices drop!

Yes. I hate e-cards. But I buy my Christmas cards wearing a coat and boots.

God bless you!

The prices of cards is horrific, if you ask me. Hallmark and others should hang its head! It's prostitution, really. I hope they don't start arresting these 'johns'. hahahah

I send cards, but not as many as I once did. I always enjoyed getting cards in the mail. And it helps the P.O. stay in business.

Our little dog was looking through a drainage hole in a concrete wall.

Did you see where they are saying that Ocala is the best place in the U.S. for housing value?

See here.

I didn't get mine done. :(
I plan on sending post cards from our cruise instead!
Right now we're waiting to board. There was a norovirus outbreak on the last cruise and they have to disinfect before letting new peeps on.

For me sending and receiving holiday cards is part of the seasonal celebrations. My cards are all sent with a few bonus cards from Jacquie Lawson's site. Unfortunately technology is rapidly changing this aspect of our society. I"m getting fewer and fewer cards every year.

I have to agree on the scary pants here.

magiceye said...

yes i do send cards mainly because I get them from BSPCA (Bombay Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals)

I have send my card

Bibi said...

No...I send a cyber letter with a card made from one of my photographs; it's just easier for me...

I'll skip commenting on the pants....but I am thinking something.

I don't do cards anymore because I don't do Christmas anymore. I have for over two decades written an annual newsletter to send to family and friends, which in recent years often gets done just before Chinese New Year and is now sent digitally, not snail mail.
