My First Time Sending Christmas Cards

I’m 35 years old and this is the first year that I sent out Christmas cards. I just never thought it was very important. That’s kind of strange since I really enjoy getting them. It all started as I began wondering about all the cards I get, and why people send them even though they’ve never gotten one in return. I get them mostly from friends and relatives that I usually see around Christmas, and so I get to wish them happy holidays in person. But still, they take the time to send me a card as an added little expression of cheer and I suddenly started to feel a little bit guilty.

Actually, the more I thought about it, the more I realized everyone I know sends me a card. Even the company I work for sends cards out to all the employees, and business Christmas cards to all their customers. So I decided I would send out cards that look awesome, don’t cost much, and don’t require too much time on my part. I got a nice customized greeting, signed them and sent them off.

I know I sound like I’m just “keeping up appearances”, and I guess that’s part of it. And maybe I haven’t got quite the right attitude about it yet, but there’s hope. And this will truly be a Happy New Year, because everyone coming to my party tonight got a card from me!

  1. I used to rush out to the store to by and send a Christmas card to every person who sent one to me. It seemed like I was running to the store every day. I finally gave in and ordered cards on line and now i send them out before I get any each year. It has gottne to be a habit – also is the first event that puts me in the Christmas spirit. I really look forward to doing this each year when in the past it used to feel like a burden.

  2. These days when hand written letters are a thing of the past I really love writing out and sending Christmas cards. I refuse to send out electronic cards because they don’t convey the same warmth and greeting that an actual card does. I love the idea of opening the mail and seeing an actual card that can be displayed and will be remembered.

  3. Actual cards are always nice to get –I love when friends give me cards with handwritten notes inside of them. It makes me feel special when I picture someone sitting down with a pen and a card and writing a sweet message just for me.
