Do you send fewer Christmas cards?

December 9th, 2009 · Ric · No Comments

Do you send as many Christmas cards as you used to? I know I don’t, in fact I’ve not sent any this this year. The only people who’ll be receiving them are my family on Christmas day. Does this mean I’m not a thoughtful person, or just lazy? Or is it because cards these days are expensive and unoriginal, add to that the price of the stamp, the probability of a postal strike, free e-cards and environmental concerns and it’s easy to see why some people don’t send so many. Do you think it’s a dying tradition, or an important part of Christmas where you show your friends how important they are to you?

Leave your comments below, we’d love to hear views from people who send lots of cards, those who send none, and everyone in between. As a special treat you can even build and send your own e-card.
