Christmas ecards by kazzzz on 4 December 2008 10:36am
I just got the first one of the year. Maybe I am ungrateful but is there a crapper way to send a Christmas card? I think not!!!!! It takes no effort you don't need to even get out of your chair!!! Bah humbug. (It wasn't from anyone here by the way lol)

And how cheap can you be? I think they are usually clever and cute, but they are no substitute for the effort and personal touch of something in the post..

I think there are some legit circumstances. Someone has moved and you don't have their new snail-mail yet. Or you have an e-relatonship, such as US, for example! If I wanted to send an individual greeting to one of you, I would send an e-card, because I know that I'm a 43-yr-old wife and mother, but YOU don't know that, and may not want to give me your snail-mail! Also, it's Dec. 24, you forgot someone at the office and you've run out of cards. There is always one of those!

My post about How Angels Came To Top Christmas Trees WAS my greeting. I just don't do holidays--too many of the ones I've had with my family have been material for Jerry Springer rather than Norman Rockwell; Mr.Teabag is of a faith that doesn't do Christmas. So I gave up.

Well to be honest this site used to have ecards (bring em back!) and I am guilty of sending several dozen.
But I don't know, Christmas is different somehow. I don't even mind birthday ecards! I really can't explain it, I guess I just like the room filled with actual cards at Xmas.

I've always thought 'receiving' an e-card only added to the spam I got. This is just my thought and not based on any scientific before-after comparison. So I don't 'open' them.

I know what you mean, Clagster. You want something tangible on your mantlepiece at Christmas time, don't you? :)

Tangerine? Well yes but I much prefer stone fruits.
Re: Christmas ecards by peripatetically on 5 December 2008 11:23am
Oh, I loove tangerines. Yum. Kaz, stop being obstructive, Hney! lol ; )

Can't do email properly - yes, do like the concept of something tangible. We usually have a decision-making where we pick the Worst and Best card, how sad is that?
