And think of it, with all the junk mail we get every year, isn't it nice to get something from someone who asks nothing in return? You are still on my list young lady... see you in December...
    I agree with you. But I happen to know a couple people who feel pressured by getting Christmas cards, as they feel they need to reciprocate. So they go out of their way to quickly dash one off, so they don't look bad, feeling resentful in the process. Not at all what the whole thing is about.
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.

    Yes and unfortunately there will always be those doing it for that reason. I also love the way they help decorate my home at Christmas time...

    I know, and it makes me feel good to see all the good wishes around me.

    Good to see that it is not fading away. Christmas cards are once again filling the shelves and besides the norm, the Big Christmas Swap (Facebook), just adds to the enjoyment of both giving and receiving cards from here in the states and around the world...

    I just got a Christmas card from Natali in Croatia- it was such a nice surprise! It put me right back in the mood. I was joking to my family that we got our first Christmas card of the year, and where should I hang it?

    Very cool indeed. I don't see me ever getting tired of sending or receiving Christmas cards...

    I have to admit, that one of the things I really enjoy, is seeing some new designs on the cards. It seriously gets me in the mood...
