Okay kids, listen up. This is a serious topic. I just want to pass along my accumulated wisdom to my children who will read this someday and marvel at what a genius they had for a father. But I digress. The topic is Holiday cards. Gather ’round and learn…
To all those poor people who are actually organized enough to get their Christmas/Holiday cards mailed out the Friday after Thanksgiving, it happens every year. Inevitably, they get a card or three from someone to who they did not send a card. Now, while they may be organized and feeling smug about their ability to wish others a
Happy Holidays Merry Christmas Happy Chanukah Happy Kwanza Happy Ramadan Happy Solstice Happy Festivus Happy Holidays, they are now in the situation that if they do not send a card to this person who was kind enough to send a card to them, they risk looking rude.
I have a better idea. Send Happy New Years cards. This is a great idea for many reasons. First, it allows you one less stressful thing to get done before December 25th. Second, and most importantly, it allows you to see who sends you a card so you don’t leave anyone off of your list. Now, you can address cards during the slow period between Christmas and New Years and still get your card in everyone’s mailbox by the first week of January. And you’ll even include a card to your cousin’s ex-girlfriend’s brother who sent you a card two days before Christmas.
TheMonk and Swee’Pea, remember to put your parents on your list because you won’t be getting a card from us until January 5th.
