    Until recently, I was not very sentimental. Now that my dad is ill, I've realized the importance of the little things like giving and recieving cards. E-greetings are cute and convenient, but it's nice to have cards come through the mail with someone's signature on it saying that they love you. It gives me a nice warm fuzzy feeling and who doesn't like to place cards around their home during the holiday? Greeting cards make some of the best decorations! When I got a greeting card from my mom this week, it put a smile on my face. I'm going to send some myself.

    This is my first Christmas away from home so I did send cards to my friends/classmates back in the Phils. And knowing the slow pace of the "snail mail", I did my mailing

    NOV 10...and I clearly marked all envelopes with - "may be opened for inspection" - that way, the PO will not pry it open thinking there's cash. Also, I didn't not seal the envelopes...instead, I just inserted the flap right in...no one is tempted coz it's obvious there's nothing there but a card.

    So far, of the 3 dozens I sent, more than half have acknowledged that they have received it.

    Since the advent of technology, I'd been sending e-cards only but I still get about a dozen or less cards thru mail but not "snail" (not the slow kind) because they are all from friends here in the States.

    Merry Christmas to one and all.

    Yep - I mail them out on December 1 every year. It's a way to reconnect with family and friends, and to let them know you're thinking of them. An email seems so impersonal - a card can be taped to the wall and kept for years. Plus, no worries about downloading media players or importing a virus!

    I went to www.snapfish.com where I had uploaded pics of our vacation, I ordered picture cards and included a letter of things that happened the previous year.

    At the bottom of the letter I also pasted pictures from our vacation, I included the address for a MySpace we created with vacation pics, videos, and a diary of events. I make it a point to send these out to ALL our friends and relatives. Some I only hear from at Christmas. I usually send my cards out the beginning of December, then I enjoy the letters or notes I receive back.

    No. I don't have much time anymore for this kind of thing. But it used to be a fun thing to do in the bygone years. I used to keep all the cards when I was still single however, I had to throw them away when I got married.

    So many of my older aunts and uncles don't have computers. I enjoy sending and receiving the regular snail mail cards. I write a personal message to each person.

    Yes. I sent out about 60 christmas cards. I send b-day cards to my family. It's fun to get something in the mail.

    I believe all thank you cards must go thru the old fashion mail. They are more personal and tell people that they are worth the trouble.
