Have you sent your Christmas cards yet?

I haven't, I am so late. Christmas is less than 2 weeks away, and I haven't even bought cards yet. I also have to get our family picture printed to put in some of them. (We always put pictures in with the cards going to people who are out of town). I have to get on that. We have already received a bunch of cards, so many people have done them already. So have you sent your cards yet, or are you a last minute kind of person like me?

No, that's what on the agenda for this weekend. I plan on spending Saturday night and Sunday writing them all out. I have about 65 of them to send!

That's a good plan. I am never prepared that far ahead of time though. Maybe some day....

I like to send them off in the first week of December get them in nice and early. I used to start them in early november so as I am ready for the christmas rush, but time can fly and you don't realise....

That's my problem, I feel like I have plenty of time, and the next thing I know, it's almost too late.

I've gotten all but 2 of my christmas cards out. They're just waiting to be taken to the post office and dropped in the outgoing mail. I started my Christmas cards on the first of December. That way I don't have to worry about people getting them after Christmas like last year! That was pretty pathetic if you ask me.

I always intend to start earlier, but then things happen, and, well, I get sidetracked. I'm going to hustle, and hopefully get them out soon.

If you're sending your Christmas Cards to someone in the same country, I doubt you'd be late from today or tomorrow. You might have to send it priority mail. I sent a box Wednesday from here in Canada to Miami, FL. And my friend hasn't received it as yet. My mom is waiting for the last minute too. She has a whole bunch of Christmas Cards and Thank You Cards to send out to people in the US. Today's the 13th, so try and send them out ASAP, so they could get there on time. When I say ASAP, I mean today or tomorrow, If you have the time. Hope you have a good one.

I'm trying, but it's not going to happen today. They are all staying in the US, though, so most should be on time.

oh bum! I'm glad you reminded me! Thank you! I meant to do them already. I've made them, but I haven't even written them out, let alone send them! One of them has to cross the Atlantic so I'd better get it in the mail tomorrow. I hope it reaches the person in time, but at this late stage I can't be sure! Darn it! Thanks again! *lol*

Don't stress. I did all of mine yesterday. Breathe. Schedule some time each day for the nest 3 days, get them out by Tuesday. It'll be fine.Tis the season for high blood pressure. And you know what, if you put happy New year in the card as well it technically won't be Late. What counts is that the people you want to get the cards and pictures get them. Mine were late yr before last. The sky didn't fall. Lol Enjoy your holiday!

Good advice. I will try to schedule time today through Sunday, and get them in the mail Monday or Tuesday.

I am late as well....I have almost given up sending cards to people....A lot of my friends are using e-cards to send Christmas cards instead... I think I would send my friends an e-card as well since its easier and more convenient...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's late. I'm not big on e cards though, so I have to get a move on.

Mine were sent a couple of weeks ago but I haven't gotten many in return so there must be a few out there like you who just are last minute people! You still have time! LOL
