It is that time of year again, The Christmas Card list. The question for the past few years, “Are we sending cards this year?”
The answer has been ‘YES’ let’s do it one more year. So we have.We just finished.
Now, my question to Sherry is, do folks keep sending us cards because of a feeling of obligation? Our postage bill for the cards is not prohibitive to us, but might be to some of the family and friends to whom we send. At present rates, two cards are about a dollar to send. If you are buying the cards by the box, the cards them selves don’t cost that much.
Men approach cards differently than ladies. Sherry reads every verse, trying to find the right one of a special person. I like ‘em all. Men do read the cards they get, but mostly are just appreciative of the card and/or gift.
Women read a card they receive as the verse is directed especially for them, the same as they search for someone. Cards are important. We had reached a point in the USA that sending cards was not cost prohibitive, and our list blossomed. Now? hey, it can cost a pretty penny.
Like many folks , we have been buying stamps since they were 3 cents, now a stamp is 45 cents.
Some folk send e-cards. They are very cute, some beautiful and interesting. We haven’t done that yet. With our systems as slow as they are it takes a long time to upload and down load a card.
I think many folks are cutting back, at least according to the postal service they have. This was always a booming time for the P.O.
Anyway, cards are mailed and we are ready for our cruise coming up in a week or so. Arrangements are being made for our motor home sitters.
Folks, Christmas is fast approaching, but you didn’t know that, did you?
Christmas is the perfect way to end a year.
Red is Christmas!
