I would like to hear if you guys have been noticing the past few years their are a huge decline in family and friends receiving christmas cards...Is it getting to the stage that sending christmas cards are a thing of the past.:elf2:

Yes it's been declining for the last 15 years. I used to receive cards from almost everyone I sent to. Now I get about 45 to 50 cards and send about 65 - down from a high of 110! It really makes me sad, but i have been eliminating people from my list once I go 3 years without receiving a card in return. There are several people I've noticed who send cards every other year. Miss it terribly!

This is a tradition that's unfortunately fading away fast. We still send out around 85-90, and we usually receive about 50.

Yes. Between my family and friends I send out about 50-60 and I only get back between 40-50.. So those who don't send back 2 years in a row, I stop sending starting the 3rd year. It tells me they just are not interested. and I'm ok with that.

I'm sure that with all the instant cards and greetings that can be sent and obtained over cell phones, the old fashioned greeting card exchange is dying some. But I enjoy sending them and receiving them (the sending is the best part). I always keep six of my favorite cards received and place them in a frame I have set aside for just that purpose. They remain until the following year.
And hey... nothing from stopping us in 2018!!! :candycane1:
