  1. Great suggestions, Kim. I recently got the nudge why do we wait til Christmas to send cards? A handwritten note means just as much, maybe more, the other 11 months of the year. Blessings! (((0)))

  2. Amen Married 56 years and done cards even with stickers and letters in each . I do keep a list so much easier . I buy cards this year to be ready to write the next following year . So much smarter .
    And yes I even collect and keep best ones I receive all these years and hang up separately . Handwritten folks the heart especially of the lonely and shows so much more love than just a signature at bottom .
    Take time and just do it . ‼️ God Bless you Max Merry Christmas

  3. I save my favorites and make a wall Christmas tree. It gets bigger every year . You have to be selective or it gets out of hand you want to keep them all. So Rotate add and subtract. You can use the back of a door. or put it on the outside. to greet guest!

    • Anna,

      Years ago when I was single I kept all my Christmas cards & used them for decorations also. It is an inexpensive way to brighten up the apartment & still remember the people that gave them to you. I keep every card I’ve ever gotten just in case I need more decorations.

      Blessings 🙂

  4. Kim,

    I, too used to send/hand out Christmas cards. Then I stopped for a long period. Not sure why guess life got busy. This year is different. Going to be intentional & get some cards to hand out at church, work & mail to friends. I know it can be hard, but if you start early like Thanksgiving weekend then you can have it done quickly.

    Blessings 🙂
