Can You Receive Too Many Company Christmas Cards?

by Henry L. on December 29, 2011

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?

I agree, getting cards, even business cards has a positive effect. Every time I receive a card whether from a business, my local church, my children’s teachers or anyone else makes me feel good.

You must be a really nice person to be remembered this way. I agree that receiving a business Christmas card does make a person feel good-like the vendor really does appreciate the business I give them. And honestly when I do get a Chrismas card I stay loyal to that vendor.

That’s not really an issue for me, man. I tend not to give my information to businesses unless I have to (or if I really like them a lot.) There aren’t even any small businesses around here for me to frequent. The only company cards I usually get are from my boss. It’s kinda sad, actually. :/

As a IT security professional, please dont give out more info than is needed (name, address). The are more security breaches than you realize. On the flip side, I also like getting cards, i’m just a little jaded… sorry!
