about the only way i could set a pen to paper (or card) would be if my life or family members' life depended on it.

or at least if it meant inheriting at least a minor fortune...

let me make sure that wine's ok before i use it.

Oh dear, Im going to sound like a cheapskate but I mostly sent E Cards all year nowadays. To elderly family members I always send a traditional card, but those with ' puters get the E Card.
I am totally shocked at the price of regular cards now, NZ$8 to $12 is normal.
One thing though, I do use a pay site for my cards as the last thing I want is for the recipients to be bombarded with spam or worse, nasty viruses. Have used same site for last 3 years and they are all designed by a wonderful, clever lady who owns the site.

In the book of life, the answers are NOT in the back.

This year I bought funny dog Christmas cards and then I always buy some Hanukkah cards along with some very beautiful and festive Christmas cards.

I like to buy cards with pictures of trios on the front because there are three of us.

It can be angels, snow men, reindeer, dogs with reindeer headbands, etc. - you get the idea.

The best was one of two king penguins with a baby penguin nestled under their feet that I found back when daughter was a toddler.

I buy all three. I do have a couple of Jewish friends and one Muslim friend and a couple of athiests thrown in. NONE, but NONE of them would be offended by a Madonna or Creche card -- we all believe in celebrating all religions! But since I need at least 75 cards, I go for all of them. My mother, also, would not find humorous cards all that amusing, and my husband loves the religous ones because the artwork is so good on them. Then there are always the people I manage to somehow forget ... Happy Holidays makes it so I can send new years cards!

This season is always so stressful to people, we always send humerous cards.

For Jewish friends we send a Happy Holiaday card.

We make A christmas letter(A4 size) that folds into a normal size card with pix and update of what we have been up to as a family the whole year.We include pix of friends and family we have been with during the year.We find it's a good way to keep in touch on a more personal level and interestingly our family and friends look foward to it each year. Last year we didn't write one as we were busy with a few things. We got messeges asking us if we had ticked them off our christmas list!

I send mostly religous cards as to me that is what Christmas is truly about. I also send a few humorous cards as well and cute cards for the kids. When the children were little we would also bake a Birthday cake and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.

When I was younger I sent humorous cards, then I strayed into cheery cards and for the past few years I have sent religious cards. This year, however, I found a cheery card that caught my eye - we sent over 125 cards and each one included a picture of the kids - it was like a production line in my family room!
