Christmas is just a few weeks away, and if you haven’t sent out your greeting cards, make sure you do it on December 9 because it is Christmas Card Day.
How to Celebrate?
- Send out your holiday and Christmas cards.
- Make your own cards – your recipients will appreciate a handmade card.
- If you have small children have them draw a picture to include.
- If you don’t have time to send in physical cards, what about sending e-cards? I do both because getting a physical card from the real mail box means more and evokes more memories and happy thoughts.
- Don’t celebrate Christmas or the holidays? Why not send out New Year cards instead?
