FUN MONDAY - Christmas mail
Faye has following topic for us :
I've Got Mail--Holiday Mail." I'd like you to share the favorites you've received so far this year: Best All Around Card? Most Meaningful Message? Best Kid Photo? Best Family Newsletter? Most Insincere/Humorous Card? Also, how do you display your cards for all to enjoy?
I don't like mail. The whole year long there are only invoices in the mailbox, nobody of my knowledge writes letters anymore and then suddenly at Christmas time, the bills get company ! Christmas Cards !
When I was in my 30 - 40, I wrote tons of Christmas cards and I got tons too. Even my neighbours sent me one through the post, which was quite ridiculous. With the increasing prices of the stamps, nobody does it anymore, we throw our best wishes verbally over the fence or through the phone, or we just see each other.
I am not a Christmas card keeper, so after Christmas I tried to recuperate some for next year and the others landed in the garbadge. I felt sorry for the cards which probably had cost a fortune, but if I would have kept them all, I would have needed to built another house.
Since a few years I only answer Christmas cards. If I get one, I answer but mostly with a phone call or with a nice self made Christmas card which I send by email when the people have a computer or by mail if not. I think this year I sent 5.
The few I got are displayed on the mantle piece.
and that's what I are wishing you all ! (Cat Rosie was my model)
