Traditions

One of my favorite traditions of the Christmas Holiday is the sending and receiving of cards. I remember as far back as my childhood being so excited as the cards began to accumulate. My mom would cover the entry closet door with shiny colored foil and the cards would one by one be displayed as they arrived. Back then it was not uncommon to have a large number of cards. My mom would sit down and write each friend and relative a personal detailed note about the past year. I as an adult continued this activity as part of my Christmas celebration. The past few years I receive less and less cards, I guess it may be the cost of postage, or people are to busy, or to some cards have just become out of style. I have gathered all my card sending materials, I choose several different cards each year, I want to have just the right card for each person on my list. The vintage cards pictured above are in my personal collection, I put them out on display to inspire me. I believe one of the best gifts we can give to another is the communication that they are in our thoughts. Wishing you lots of cards~Jacque

I send cards too. I don't get many anymore but I still send the same people cards each year(-: I think it is beacause people are really busy and also because of the cost of cards/postage. It is a nice thing to do though(-:
