If I don't xmas cards this year - or maybe ever again - does that make me a Scrooge?
I hate the feelings of guilt about having to send out cards to anyone & everyone.
Does it make sense to send out cards to people just because they send me a card?
Honestly, there are some people I would want to send cards, but do you need to send a card if you will see them in person? Isn't a verbal greeting as good or better?
Isn't it ok to just send cards to people you want to but cannot give a verbal greeting to? Or maybe I should just call those people instead -- I'm thinking of those people out of state that I do not have the opportunity to wish a Happy Holidays to.
I feel a little like the card business has made such a push at commercializing the holidays and making you feel guilty if you don't buy a $5 box of cards and send it out.
Really, what is a card if all it is, is a card with no letter or anything and is just a signature on some pre-printed words.
I'm not doing xmas cards this year, well, I might send out to a couple of friends out of state I will not see and call them too. But other than that, I am giving myself permission to not feel guilty about not doing cards. And maybe next year I will feel even better about not doing it.
