As soon as I decorate my place for Christmas I know holiday cards are soon to arrive. Yet over the last five years fewer cards arrive in the mailbox. Last year I believe I only received four physical Christmas cards. But over ten email Christmas letters, and three photo only mail with no family letter.
Has the reason for less Christmas cards, filled with updates of family and friends lessened because of postage rates/cost of cards on budgets? Or is it Facebook, Twitter, and blogs that have erased the need for the yearly update Christmas card?
I admit for me, I send about 5 Christmas cards out to specific people and the rest get an emailed Christmas letter (due to budget restrictions). I do hope to get back to old school Christmas cards.
What are your reasons for sending or not sending holiday cards?
