Atlanta, Georgia before it was burned at Gen Sherman's orders.
There are Christmas Cards:
I am not a card person. My Sherry is. Maybe most ladies are. When a grandson has a birthday, she must find a card that says “Happy birthday Grandson”. Also the verse must be right. I have to admit I have read card verses that were just ‘wrong’, but most of them are so generic and flattering, you are not going to be wrong. (Disclaimer that is in my opinion.)
I did love the cards Sherry used to hang around the living room door frame.
Now going to a granddaughter I can understand it. But boys for the most part are actually interested in the check inside. LOL. Oh don’t get me wrong, the boys do appreciate the card and most do read the verse inside. But over all they had just as well hear HAPPY BIRTHDAY go out to eat and get the Birthday present.
Christmas cards? We have cut back a lot. I am not worried by the cost but some people's budget says they must watch it. I do not want them to feel obligated to send us one. If you send 50 cards now, that is $25.00! Next year will probably cut back more. If you do not send cards and get one from a friend, do you then get a card and return the thoughtful person’s effort?
OR in the same vein, if you get a card for someone you do not normally send to, do you respond in kind this year or put them on the list for next year?
