If you don't send christmas cards, would you get some yourself?

The last couple of years I send them really early (1st week of december), so that I would get lots and lots myself ... Yeah, I made them feel guilty. lol BUT this year I was really late and guess what .... instead of 20 cards we received 4 so far. So, actually it's a phony thing, isn't it? Still nice to get them and hang them all up. And every now and again, there's a nice one with a personal message in between.

  • I send them because I want to say hello at the holidays. I don't care if I get any in return. I had to cut back this year because my husband is out of work. But I did send newsy emails explaining the situation and have received some wonderful replies. Plus we have received about 20 cards so far.

  • I have sent out usually right after Thansgiving is over over 50 and I would always get around 20 back this year I made out 12 I have gotten 4 and I think if they can't think of me any other time of year other then Christmas they are not worth my time

  • I sent out over 20 cards, and have only received one so... I have been sending cards to the same people for about 4 years and have never gotten cards back. It really sucks

  • Why do you still do it them? Friendship is not a one way street.

  • i sent out 36 and recieved 8 back, between my family and my husbands i try not to forget people, family is so important and when you are distant its a nice little reminder that you are being thought about at suuch a big time of the year, especially when i stopped driving to my grandmas for the 2nd time in my 28 years of life, so sometimes i take it personal but i am quick forgiver.

  • Usually I don't and I get a few from my husbands family. This year I sent some out mostly to the people we're closest too and I got cards from mostly the same people I always get cards from.
