I don’t think it’s possible that anyone could receive too many Christmas wishes. With so many families separated by hundreds or even thousands of miles, cards are the main way we are able to personalize and send greetings. My holiday was brightened tremendously by not only receiving a card from my distant family, but also company Christmas cards from a local ‘mom and pop’ hardware store that I shopped frequently when I lived in that town. Imagine my surprise when I opened the envelope to find a Christmas card complete with a picture of the store and the owners who still run the place inside. The greeting was, “We all miss you here, but wish you well as you embark on your life journey”. I have to admit, it made me quite homesick for a while, but as far as cards go, I’d have to say that one is my favorite. I plan on keeping it out all year for motivation and inspiration to follow my dreams.
In my opinion, it’s great to receive these types of cards. Even if you receive business Christmas cards that aren’t as personal as mine was, you can be sure that the company behind them values you as a customer or colleague and truly does whish you and yours well. After all, isn’t that what the holidays are about?
