Poll question: Too late to do holiday cards?
(For what it's worth, I originally typed "Christmas" cards and realized it before I posted, so it's still ingrained in my mind that way, even after 35+ years of Catholicism)


I haven't done cards yet. There are about 20 or 30 to do--IF I do them at all. Don't have the patience to do a "Update letter" and it seems rather cold to just do an impersonal--but with XXOOXX--card with nothing else.

So should I try anyhow? Some of them have to go to Canada, and this time of year, it's slower than Canadian maple syrup, so if I had thought about it, I should have to have done them several weeks ago. But, eh--shouldn't it be the thought that counts?

So I'm leaving it up to you all--should I merely try to get "something" out, or should I take a year off and try to get through the holdays without that extra stress?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. Other. Do a New Years card.
I still do Xmas cards and enjoy getting them, even with a super short note. But it's a lovely and welcome surprise to get a card in cold, dark January wishing me a wonderful new year, especially when the sender has more time to write a longer note.

3. I did mine last week-end. Do it. Forget the letter.
Happy Holidays!
