I always buy happy holiday cards (usually Christmas ones for December), and sometimes funny ones depending on who I am sending the card to. I have never sent a religious card. I forget how to do polls too, though I have done it once or twice.

For birthdays and other events I generally find funny cards (depending of course on who it is for), but for Christmas I always look carefully to find religious cards that best express my faith. The ones I get are always cheery though, and they have an upbeat message. I usually get a couple funny ones (to give in addition to the others) for my daughter and grandkids and a funny (and sometimes kind of "naughty") one for my husband. Last year I needed more cards and couldn't find any religious ones I liked, so I got some cute ones. And for my kids at school I get cute cartoon character cards or cards with Santa on them.

I bought funny cards this year but now I'm rethinking it. I nearly fell on the floor laughing at the store but ... I'm just not sure my friends will appreciate the humor at Christmas.

I usually just buy simple, lovely cards. I've never sent out religious cards.

I buy all three. I don't think my Mother would get the humour in the frog wearing a Santa hat sitting in a martini glass! We bought some this year that you can record your own greeting. We sounded like the chipmunks in some of them.

Depends on the recepients... I don't go for the religious because I am not a religious person, but it could be "funny", "cute", "beautiful", or any combination of the 2 or 3.
These days I enjoy making my own on my PC, though I need to scramble around for proper envelopes!

Usually "Happy Holidays" unless it's to someone who really know my personality then I go for the humerous ones.

I usually have a difficult time deciding on a box of cards because the recipients sometimes only know one or two facets of what makes me.. It's hard to wrap me up entirely in one picture image. My list of cards to mail out isn't overly long, so it doesn't make sense to buy more than one box. I usually find the sentiment written inside to be flat or cheese-y.

I don't subscribe to organized religion, although I would say that if I leaned towards anything, it would be paganism. Most people don't understand that, and surely Hallmark doesn't get it. I believe I'm a victorian at heart so I try to find cards that express that nature in me.
