Every year, I debate how to be better at sending Christmas and New Year’s cards to family and friends. It isn’t just the discussion of digital versus paper.
Most people can be reached online so that cuts the costs of cards and stamps. And it cannot be underestimated. An international forever stamps is $1.20 so when I buy a box of Christmas cards from Unicef, 20 cards for $20, the stamp is more expensive than the card. But that isn’t all.
I don’t know about you but whatever I do, I am always late. See, I have a friend who is clever. She starts selecting pictures to use on her Holiday cards in summer so buy the time fall comes along, she’d ready. Her card usually prompts me into action.
So my big chore this week is: getting my act together!
Select pictures, make a collage, make an email list (of course I can’t find the one from last year) and, write a fitting message. Needless to say that 2020 was a year off the charts and that I sincerely hope that 2021 will be better for everyone in every and any aspect.
But there’s one more thing: the Christmas letter. I have friends who faithfully send yearly updates in their Christmas letter. We usually don’t. Somehow I think that 2020 isn’t a good year to pick up that tradition.
Now I have been looking into pictures. This one is right now my favorite. However, the gang here says that it isn’t Christmassy enough. Thoughts?
