Do you have Christmas Card relationships?
December 26, 2007 4:03pm CST
That is, do you have some people in your life who you only communicate with via the annual Christmas card? I just looked through the cards we received and I have 3 friends who I don't hear from all year, yet they send me the annual Christmas card with their kids pictures on it. I always reciprocate, of course. But when do we stop this silly charade? Should I scratch them off my list for next year or keep this silliness going???

I think everyone gets busy especially with kids. If you live far away from someone it is nice to at least get a Christmas card even if you aren't that close of friends anymore. I misplaced a lifelong friend of mine's address and now I no longer receive his Christmas Newsletter that evidently they sent out after receiving all of their Christmas cards each year. I miss reading about how their family is doing. They always wrote the letter in a humorous manner too, which is what I always liked about being around him when we were growing up.
