|Bill signing our Christmas cards 2011|
Bill just finished signing our Christmas cards this morning, this year's Christmas cards are finished and ready to mail!
We don't put up a tree, we don't exchange Christmas presents. This year we're not even putting up Christmas lights outside the house. But I am sending Christmas cards. I love sending Christmas cards!
I've been sending Christmas cards since I was about 13 or 14 years old. Every year since then I've sent Christmas cards. I send them to former co-workers, relatives, and former neighbors. This is how I keep in touch with old friends and relatives and those I care for with whom I am no longer geographically near.
Every year I look forward to choosing my new Christmas card. For many years I included a professional photo of myself. These years I make my own photo Christmas card.
Each year my Christmas card has grown. This year is the first time it has reached 100. I had to remove some names to keep it at 100. I don't want to go over 100.
A note to those who receive a Christmas card from me and Bill, we don't expect to receive one in return. I don't do "tit-for-tat." I only send Christmas cards to those I care for to give them my best wishes during this holiday season.
Now to lick all those envelopes!
