When & for what occassion do you send "Thank You" cards?

After how long should you send Thank You cards out? And what occassions do YOU send them for? My MIL is saying I should send Thank Yous out for Christmas, but my thing is is that if I see you there and thank you for it in person then I don't need to send one out.

I will send TYs you for:
-Birthday Parties
-Baby Showers
-Wedding Showers
-Parties I host
-House Warmings

  • We HS. As part of my DS's language arts unit I do "letters' right after Christmas break. He has to address envelopes and then write thank you letters for ALL of the presents he received - even if he thanked them in person.

    I think it's necessary to send out TY cards/notes for gifts and any out of the way gesture sometime takes time for for you.
