Then wondered if anybody does cards in the regular mail like me? Or has that fallen off like other habits of long ago? I enjoy the giving of cards and able to maybe cheer someone up, letting them know someone was thinking of them Of course that someone is me! Do you still do cards or do you think you can just say your thoughts online? If you'd like a card from me..PM me your address..if i can toss in a brownie i will

A card in the mail is a tangible greeting that can be enjoyed over and over.

Will I get one? I remember the first day i received the first Xmas card from my american friend. She is now 70 I think, living in California, she was an english teacher and travel to teach after retiring. I asked her if she can use any social network to join, but somehow she just loves to send gift card, Every years she sends me cards on email. I miss the first time we've met in Hue city when I was a freshman in English Department College of Languages

@Rosekitty I am afraid that I can't receive yours, other friends' also cuz I live in a small remote village in Vietnam, which may not have the address. Before she could send me becuz that time I was in the city. Since then, she only send using a service online. hihi

I used to send cards and did so for many years. I don't have the desire to do it anymore. Maybe to a few close friends but that is about it.

I meant to get some cards tonight, but did not. I wanted to let people know about our move and all sorts of things. E mail me a brownie please.

Yes I still send out about 4 or five Christmas cards a year. I just think they are more personal.

@Rosekitty The way I look at it is, it's only once a year so why not.

Here in India, if I try sending out a card by normal snail mail, there is no assurance as of today, if the card will reach the addressee (forget the on time thing). So eventually, I will try sending out via couriers... and in that case, the cost of sending the card will be higher (much higher) than the card itself. So for all relatives whom I need to send a card (if ever I do), I think a phone call is a better option. I do not do much of those online cards for local (Indian) addresses now. And as you mention a chance of one of your brownies in the envelope along with the card.... I am getting lured to send you my address.... Do you ship those to my place? Or you would rather drop one of those in my mail box that I have been trying to set up right on the cupboard

@thesids I guess to avoid the hassle i will just post them in your cupboard here since it sounds like you are having a costly time getting cards out otherwise.

I used to be so on top of the Christmas cards - in fact I used to hand make them every year and enjoyed mailing them out. But then I didn't have time to make them anymore, and stubbornly refused to send bought cards . . . and this went on for years. This year I know the SAME thing is going to happen BUT I aim to personal messages to everyone - beit FB, PM, whatever online. One of these years I plan to make those cards again.

When the postage got over a dollar we stopped sending cards. We hand them out to friends and family and the neighbors but we don't mail them anymore.

I still do cards. We have friends from other areas and if we didn't send cards (and perhaps enclose a letter) at Christmas we'd lose touch altogether.
