Are Christmas cards outdated?
When I was married, we seemed to get quite a few Christmas cards, numbers diminished as older relatives passed away. I always sent them to grandparents, aunts/uncles, siblings, cousins once they were out of the nest, long distance friends. Last year, we got few, I figured that with my move, things got lost in the mail, although I live in a small town. Again,I sent cards last year, then writing "new address" next to the upper left corner where I wrote my new address. I figured I'd get a few more cards this year, compared to last. I only got a handful this year. So I am wondering, are Christmas cards outdated? a sign of the economic times (postage is far from cheap if mailing many cards). I figure that if I don't get a card from someone by tomorrow, it's just not happening. Many have posted a general "Merry Christmas" and Happy holidays message on Facebook
