I send out Christmas cards every year.  I only send e-cards for a couple of friends that prefer them.  I really enjoy picking out cards for my family and friends and writing out personal messages to them, and love to receive cards through the mail as well.  They are so much more personal and meaningful than sending out an e-card, in my opinion.

I really hadn't decided, in a way think it would be nice, especially to actually hand write them and mail them out but I have so few folks to send them to that I don't know if it would really be worth the effort.  I might sit down now and make a list because your post is food for thought.  In the last couple of years sent some e cards but I like the idea of paper cards, handwritten notes etc.  MMMnnn I think I just may do it.  :dog:

I actually am going to send out cards this year.  Although I too have cut my list back.  I'm not sure how many more years I'll keep doing it.  I just know that I like getting them, and that's probably why I keep sending them.

I may send out a few to my grandparents, everyone else will probably get an e-card or a "social media shout out". BUT if we take a family picture then I'll send out a few more to aunts, uncles, and other family members/close friends.

In the past I sent out about 25 cards each year.  But I stopped sending out Christmas Cards for many reasons.

I sent out about 80 cards this year.  I hand made them all, stamps, ribbons, stickers with a family picture.  I enjoy making them so it is fun.  I also like to get holiday cards.  I cut them to fit my 4x6 photo album and keep the pictures.  I only recycle the card itself, not the photos.

I always send out real cards to family and close friends.  Family gets special targeted cards (parents, siblings, grandparents), others get nice box set cards.  I typically include a one page annual summary of what I've been up to over the year.  I only send out a couple ecards to some long distance group friends I have (trivia team, space camp alumni).

I am sending out Christmas cards this year. I don't want to let go of the Christmas feeling that opening those Christmas cards brings. So much of the fun of the season is being lost to  the corporate grinch, I don't want to lose anymore so I am keeping the tradition of sending cards out to those I care for remembering them in this happy season. :)
