Are e-holiday cards gauche?

    My photo cards just arrived yesterday!  I love sending & receiving them and appreciate the effort that has gone in to the act of making & mailing them.  From several posts I’ve seen on FB, it seems many are happy to let the tradition fall by the wayside but sadly, it’s all or nothing for most, they don’t make the graduated step from physical cards to e-cards, they just drop it all together.  There was a noticeable decrease in the amount we received last year, I suspect even less will do it this year.

    I agree with you I like real cards.  Here is the blog post I wrote the other week on the topic http://adinfinitumcorporate.wordpress.com/2011/11/17/holiday-cards-to-send-or-not-to-send/

    I love sending an receiving them but currently my husband’s in grad school and we don’t have the money to spend on cards and postage…so I just sent out e-mailed cards this morning actually.  I added a photo of our kids and updates on everyone.  I honestly think people understand if you’re in a tight financial situation (not that you want to publicly state that in a Christmas card) but in our case, everyone knows we’re in school so it’s a duh!?!?  But right when we’re back to have a paycheck, we’re going to send cards b/c they really do brighten people’s day and the whole season.

    Kris – I couldn’t agree more that people understand. And I’d rather get a nice e-card from a good friend than nothing at all! Kudos to you for being so organized. 🙂
