Growing up it seemed like we got so many Christmas cards every year. We would get them from friends, family, neighbors, coworkers and friends we only heard from once a Christmas, when they sent their Christmas cards.

Right after Thanksgiving cards would start coming in the mail.

Now, it seems like most people I stopped sending Christmas cards. I'm not sure why.

It could be because many feel the need to save the money on the cards and postage. So, they just send an email with a card attached.

I don't like getting email Christmas cards.

Or, perhaps people just don't have the time they used to.

Maybe they feel Christmas has become to commercial.

But, if that is the reason, they could always make them.

I'm not sure why really people don't send cards like they used to.

I still send them out. I still love to get the mail and see a card waiting to be opened.

How about you? Do you send cards out? Do you like getting them? If you don't, why?

Oh what a sweet blessing you are.
I love to send cards and recieve cards but alas I mostly send .
The few cards that arrive now are from less than a handful of Aunts and Uncles .
For which I am truly thankful !
Please e-mail me I would love to send you a card from someone who enjoys this simple greeting with so much giving .
A card is like a book a gift you can open again and again as needed.
I also have an address for A Recovering American Soldier posted on my blog if you have a chance to drop by .
Take care and thank you for this wonderful post it truly touched my heart .
Until Next Time
Happy Trails

Darn, I KNEW IT! I put my comment for this post on your last post. SHEESH!
I said NO, I don't like the virtual cards..but I understand them.
Oh..and I don't like that new book thing. Can't think of the name of it. I want a really book with a cover that sort of cracks the first time you open know?
