38. So sorry to hear...

about your separation. That a real bummer. 😟

Although I've never had the energy to write long personal notes for each card and never mailed more than 30-something, I still like the tradition. I'm sentimental.

Most people I now sent cards to live far and wide, even in the UK and China. We're all too busy to write much.

My thoughts on cards...
- theyre a friendly wave to say hi and say we still think about you. I thinks it makes people happy to know that they're being thought of.
- hubs and I like getting the family pics and news.
- we send to folks in their 80's and 1 90yo who never uses email.
- we are flattered to receive the cards.

Otherwise, this old atheist is a bit of a humbug on C'mas. Hubs and I never exchange Christmas gifts and except for our son, we buy very few gifts for family and friends. My tree for the last 5 yrs has been our tall old potted Norfolk pine with some tinsel roping thrown on it.

To each his own. I try not to knock the traditions of others.
