Sending Christmas cards is a tradition for me. Usually I write a letter detailing what we have been up to, but this year I chose to simplify by uploading a photo to Shutterfly and pressing the order button. Simple is better.
I send cards to let the recipient know that I value them and remember them at this time of year. I could email, text, or send greetings to one-and-all on social media, but it is not the same as sending (or receiving) a card. Think of what you like. Would you like to find a card, or better yet, a card and a note in the mailbox?
I make time to write cards because I value the connection and want to stay in touch with friends. It's a simple thing that brightens my day.
