did you get a class list and have to pass out to everyone?
or were swapping optional and you gave to only your real friends and there was always a kid or two who only got a card from the teacher?
It's one of those things I'm sooooo happy has changed I was born in 1981 and all through my school yrs we would always decorate a shoe box and leave it on our desk but passing out cards was each kids discretion.

I was born in the late '60's. We would make cards as part of a class craft project for each child. Then we made heart shaped holders & taped them on the front of our desk. Everyone then got cards from everyone! Parents never sent in a dime. The school provided all the craft materials. We never did Birthdays in school or fund raisers. Teachers taught everything. Parents did not help with homework IF we got any. No class Mothers either. Teachers taught us how to read & write. It was much better back then.

My dau is 10 y/o & has always passed out to everyone in the class. Can you imagine if it were any other way & someone did not get any? How sad would that be?
