Its going to be my son’s first Christmas this year. The Christmas lights are already up and turned on. I love Christmas, I love the lights, the cheesy music, I love sitting in the dark with my hubby and looking at our Christmas lights. But I hate doing Christmas Cards. I should correct myself, I hate doing Christmas cards and getting none in return!
It’s going to be so exciting to have my son introduced to our holiday traditions, even if he won’t really get it! I don’t plan on getting him much else besides a jack in the box because I know that he’ll be more interested in the paper and the boxes!
So as I sit here and write this I’ve looked up a countdown to Christmas and apparently there are 52 days 4 hours and three minutes until Christmas. Do you think that it will make me shop any faster? No. I’m not one of those organized persons who is done in September, October or November. It’s usually me in the mall those last few days before the big day. Oh well!
I had posted on twittermoms about the lost art of Christmas cards, how every year I send about 60 out and get a handful back. Part of my issue is the postage I spend every year. I actually don’t like spending the time to write out the addresses and write out the cards, but I love knowing I’m doing the "right thing." How sad is that?
So to all of my readers, do you or your significant others send out Christmas cards? Why or why not? Did your family send out cards when you were a child? I think that’s why I feel compelled to send out Christmas cards, because my mom and my sister always do. Oh well, I’m off to address some envelopes!
