Every holiday season, I always send cards. I personally believe that the holiday season is a time for togetherness and celebrating, and even though you cannot see everyone you care about, you can show them that you care by sending out cards.
In this day and age, technology has taken us over and we forgot how important and special it was to send and receive holiday cards, letters, and packages.
For those of us born before the age of the internet, do you remember receiving letters? I do. And I remember being so excited getting letters to read, writing back, etc.
Even after the age of the internet, email, and facebook, when my sister moved to VA, we still wrote letters. It was just something that we did. We loved sending and receiving, and I think the effort that goes into writing a letter, getting a stamp, and putting the letter in the mailbox, shows more that someone cares.
I love to get letters and I love to send letters. Don’t get me wrong, I live on my email, and I absolutely love social media, I think it was a great invention, and an absolutely tremendous advancement in connecting the world together, keeping everyone connected. However, there is still something to receiving a holiday card, a letter, flowers, gifts, etc.
This isn’t a practice that I’m ready to give up just yet. I don’t send the photo cards that you can order from a printing service either. I send old-fashioned, holiday cards, and I stick photos in them. I try to write personal notes on each of them, but that’s always very ambitious of me, especially during the holiday season. Still, it’s a nice thought, and something I strive to do for my loved ones.
