The card mosaic is coming along nicely 🙂 I love seeing what people send out!
One Christmas tradition I am pretty into is sending cards. When DH and I first got married, I sat down on our long Thanksgiving weekend and sent out our first batch of cards. I really just did it then because I had the time and energy, and wanted to get it out of the way. Then I got a lot of hassle about ours being “so early”. So I did it again the next year, mostly out of spite. And it became a thing. Over the years, a couple of people have sent our card to us in June or something just to be silly, but most years ours are the first cards anyone on our list gets.
Every year I get some goofy cards for people who I think will enjoy them, and then normal cards for everyone else. Most recently my goofy cards have been from Alternate Histories because I just love his work. But because most of his cards feature space aliens and zombies and so on, not everyone will enjoy them. So 16 people get the wacky cards, everyone else gets something a little more mainstream.
Do you send cards? If so, do you have anything special you do around them, or just send them out? Annual letter – yes or no?
