Because I communicate with most of the people on our Christmas card list throughout the year … and because some of the cards I sent have so little space to write (especially those pop-up cards this year!), I don’t feel bad about writing a brief greeting & signing the card. For people I don’t correspond with much, I will write a bit more information, just some of the highlights & I’ll inquire about what’s going on with them. We don’t do a holiday letter, but instead, we often send out a Christmas Eve email, with a photo of us attached & a few words on how we’re celebrating the holiday, and sometimes a brief year-in-review. Maybe this year I’ll wise up and make a slideshow & just send people a link!
As of December 1st, I’ve got all of my cards in the mail, complete with holiday postage stamps and holiday return address labels. Occasionally, I’ll get a card from someone who fell off the radar … or someone new. I have a couple of the embossed snowflake ones left, just in case, and I’ll get one out right away, if I get a card from someone I’ve missed!"
Yes, I am one of those crazy, hyper-organized people. Don't hate me too much, okay?
