I love writing cards and old-fashioned mailing them to everybody. Do you like to do this? or do you send email greetings now?

I usually send them e-mail greetings because it's faster and easier and there's no shipping costs! Plus it's there at the speed of light. I don't ever have to worry about it being late, and if it get's lost I can resend it just like the way I had it because it would save it as a draft. That's why I send e-mail greetings!

I enjoy recieving both e-cards and cards through the mail. Although,I prefer looking in the mailbox to find a holiday greeting card. It is one of the many simple joys of the Christmas season. So, I continue to send greeting cards the old-fashioned way through the mail. I think sending the cards through the mail is a little more personal.

I email alot but it's so impersonal. For special occasions and holidays- I always send cards! I don't make my own too busy making soap and other things- but I do want to try it sometime!

I like to send email greetings to friends and family. Since we can know fro sure that it will be delivered at the right moment or the right time. And it is much more easier than sending people cards with old-fashioned mails, since we need to but the cards and bring them to post office. Will take more time.

I send card in the mail I find them to be more personal than an email greeting. I have decided this year that I am only going to send cards to those that send me a card though.

I am pretty lazy about doing that throughout the years. I usually e-card everyone and call it a day. I used to enjoy the mailing of cards, but I just got lazy on it! I have considered trying to do it again in the next cuople of years. I won't be able to this year because I have to begin collecting addresses and updating my address book so I can send them to the right places. That's how out of date my address book is! Yikes!

Eventhough mailing letters through email is very popular nowadays, I prefer sending cards the old-fashioned way. Not all of my loved ones have an internet access.

I prefer writing and sending Holiday or greeting cards the old way. This way, you are indirectly implying your sincerity with your own hand writing and going through all the trouble of sending it the old fashioned way.
