Do you (still) send Christmas cards?

Fed up talking videogames? Why?

Growing up in the 70s, the Christmas cards were a part of the Christmas build up, actually hanging them up around the house. A sign of changing times I guess and another tradition lost as social media makes us all less social.


How far back does a "tradition" have to go? The first Christmas card wasn't even sent until the 1840s and it was quite a while after that before it became popular amongst the plebs.

I guess it is all the fault of the war on Christmas. I expect you'll get arrested soon for a "Christmas" card rather than a "Holiday" card. :x


For me personally, a life long tradition. Yes, Christmas probably is next as there are "Happy Holidays!" cards around so not to offend those who do not like Christmas, but are happy to participate in the trappings (such as public holidays). A pet hate of mine is seeing cards that say "Happy Christmas" or "Merry Xmas". It is "Merry Christmas" bitches.


Traditionally it is "Yule".
You are thinking "Yo".

Yes?

I stopped sending them about 5 years ago. I think greetings cards in general are a waste of money, I begrudgingly send birthday cards to my immediate family only because the one time I didn't my mother bitched at me for months about how I "forgot" her birthday which for the record I didn't, I bought her a present I just chose not to waste money on a card.

I still send them to relatives and friends, for some reason though I have been receiving a few cards smeared in gooseberry fool.
