I'm going to sound like Scrooge but we don't do cards or wrapping paper (much) for any celebration. We were only making an effort to catch up with people once or twice a year and taking the easy road by sending a printed letter exactly the same to everyone in a card at Christmas. It was all feeling very impersonal and disconnected so we decided that we were going to try really, really hard to visit or communicate by phone or Skype. It's our little effort to improve friendships with a more personal approach and help the environment a little too. Please don't get me wrong I love cards but WE were using them as a way to not actually get together with people, avoiding contact, so we just changed our own ways and we are not trying to start a trend.

We used to do it the day after Thanksgiving. Now we do it the first week of December in order to get a certain postmark cancellation.

I was thinking of trying to have them all ready to send out on Dec 1st.

I am not sure if I'll have time though. But at the latest, Dec 7 or so.

I will send mine out after Thanksgiving. Getting a family picture done to enclose. Please take time and send cards to friends and relatives of the older generations. They usually look forward to the cards and love reading them. Before emails and other modern communications, Christmas cards were a very special way of keeping in contact. Also, added to the festive holiday decor. So help brighten the day of someone who is lonely, a shut-in or just in need of a smile.

I like to have pics of my kids in the design of my cards, so I take family pics in front of my tree. I create cards on Walmart and add a few school pics in each envelope. My problem is getting them out at a decent time. I don't put my tree up until Thanksgiving weekend, and by that time I am so busy cards are one of the last things I do. In fact, last year I was so late that I just attached them to people's gifts with a candy cane! (Extended family members received theirs very late, probably after Christmas!) This year I am going to try to be more pro-active.

Either way, its really the thought that counts. My family appreciates these pic cards because it gives even extended family and friends a chance to see my 4 & 5 year olds grow. I always keep a card for my family album as well. I am bad about taking pictures on Christmas day so this kind of helps with that. (This year I vow to take pics- I want them to have a record of the Christmas memories!!)

I just got mine sent out today! I do up one of those Christmas letters about the family, usually just in a letter sized envelope. This year my mother gave me a bunch of old Christmas cards she's had sitting around for years, as they don't send cards out anymore. So I stuck my letter in lovely cards this year! Whew, check that off my list. Now, a few more things to buy, and lots of wrapping to do!
