Most of my Christmas cards are ready to be mailed out. As a person who has always loved sending - and receiving - mail, I find great satisfaction in the stack of envelopes all sealed, addressed, and stamped. I enjoy my memories of the people I'm sending to as I go down my list, writing out their cards, thinking of them getting ready for Christmas as well. Sadly, after I don't hear back from recipients after a few years, I will start emailing them Christmas greetings instead of sending them through the post. Is this cold-hearted? What do you do? I know that many people are truly too busy to prepare dozens of cards, so I don't begrudge them that. And do you save your Christmas cards? I do love finding them in my box, just as much as I love putting them together myself and sending them out into the world, little missives of 'hello' and 'how are you doing?' and 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Christ is Born!'
