It's nearly too late

For what?  Why, to send Christmas cards of course.  My mom used to send (seemingly) hundreds of cards, hand addressing each one.  She would start writing them right after Halloween and work long into the night.  We would get tons of cards in return.  That was the practice then.  What about now?

Do you send Christmas cards?  Regular cards or electronics ones?  Do you send hours looking for the right card or just grab the top box?  Do you write an annual letter and send that along as well?  Or do you even bother?

And before I seem like a cad - thank you to everyone who sent me cards!  They were lovely!

So, now, what say you, cousins?
