2013 appears to have had a huge decline in the Christmas cards in which we received. How do I know this? I save our Christmas cards from the prior year to make sure that those who have sent us one, receive one. We received 2/3 of the amount that we received in 2012. E-greetings and posts to facebook are So. Not. Personal. When you fill out a card you at least think about the recipient. I love the ones with personal messages to us inside.
I have to admit that I don't send a card EVERY year (usually because I procrastinated to long), but most years. As a society we are getting less personable all the time. I understand it is faster and cheaper to just post Merry Christmas or email a Christmas greeting. I don't get the same feeling from reading them as I do when I tear open the envelope to a card. I wait eagerly for the mail to arrive daily in December because I'm hoping the mailbox holds more than bills & junk mail. Christ's birth is important! I hope all of you that read this continue to bless others with a personal Christmas greeting that can physically be held in ones hand.
Do you prefer a card or and electronic greeting?
