What do you do with Christmas cards?

I usually just throw them away as soon as I get them. :/ 

Unless they are photo cards. Then I usually try to figure out where to put them up for a bit. Or if I really love them I hang them inside the hall closet door. 

How long do you typically keep them?

If they're photo cards I keep them. Some of the cards I save some I toss.

What if they are photo cards from people you don't like? lol

I always feel guilty throwing those away right off the bat.

Lol! I've never received a photo card from someone I didn't like! If I did I'd probably toss it right away.

hahaha SO has extended family that we don't really like and they always send this big long awkward letter about how great their year was and all of their family updates. Along with a photo card. I feel bad but I have zero desire to look at their family photos. :P

We hang ours up until all the decorations come down, then I toss the regular ones & the photo ones I save for scrapbooking (I just cut the pic out.)

Eh, don't feel bad. If you don't like someone you don't like them. You can't help the way you feel.

Haha this makes me feel better. I have two lone photo card survivors hanging on my fridge and I was wondering if I was the only person!

I hang them on the wall until Christmas is over, then I throw them out.
