This is something new for me...............

.....I will not be sending out ANY Christmas cards this year! :oops: :roll: (first time in 30+ years) Christmas is NEXT weekend and apparently I didn't get the memo :roll: I just don't know where the time has gone, and I'm feeling a bit guilty about it. Has this ever happened to anyone else? I hope to be at it again next Christmas. So for now, to all my BN friends, Merry Christmas. Love, Mo :D

Merry Christmas, really, but don't wait up for a card.

Haven't been sending any for several years now. It's quite liberating actually. :D

Mine went out yesterday. It didn't take me nearly as long as I thought it would. It was just getting to it that was killing me....that and a trip to the dreaded post office.

All done though! I feel great and I'm enjoying all the BN cards that have arrived in my mail this year.

Merry Christmas back at ya MO!

I have often said that I was going to try to send out my "christmas" cards in the middle of the summer or another time so that they were actually a surprise and probably much more appreciated. Of course, I never get around to it so I rush the weekend after Turkey Day to do them. If I wait longer than that, they don't go out :(


Like our Guru says, "Someday I will." :)
well, ummmmmmm, yah, I guess I better come up with something witty to put in this spot since everyone is reading it.......

Hey whatever works for ya, is whatever works for ya. :D No rules.

I love to send them out. I sent people some that weren't expecting them, and I got nice messages of thanks for remembering them. :D That makes my heart happy.

There was one fellow that I worked with years ago that I haven't seen in years and I was wondering this year whether to send him a card this year. I decided to go ahead and send him one and I was very glad I did. I got his card the same day I mailed mine....and he had written a personal note and sent a picture of the new puppy he and his wife had gotten.

It always makes me smile when there is something more than a signature in the card. :D

Giftwise this year we're just focusing on our son, nephews, nieces and our parents.
Everyone else gets a card "if" I run into them.
I've got some pre-signed cards ready for anyone who hits us with a gift.

I too am a procrastinator, so I try to send cards that say "Happy Holidays" rather than "Merry Christmas".
Hey, New Year's Day and MLK Day are holidays, right?

(also, not everybody celebrates Christmas; there's also Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Festivus in there somewhere.....)
