It’s time once again for Tuesday Talk where Erika and Ashley have a link up to talk about all sorts of fun things!!
In August, I talked about short hair and wearing hats
In September, we had a battle of the bacon
In October, I talked about a life GAME CHANGER
In November, I asked how YOU use your turkey leftovers
Well, THIS MONTH I’m talking about CHRISTMAS CARDS!! Is it me or do you think Christmas Cards are becoming a thing of the past?? For years, we’ve been sending a Christmas letter and picture to friends and family. Over the last five years or so I’ve noticed a huge drop in the amount of cards we get each year- which I think is sad!!
I chatted with some girlfriends about this subject and I think we’ve come up with a few reasons why Christmas cards are on the decline.
- It takes time to write a letter, take a photo, make copies of the photo, address the cards and get them in the mail. Some don’t have the time!
- It’s expensive! Stamps are going up to 50 cents a piece in January!!
- We share on social media so much that there’s no need to update friends on what’s going on
This year, we ARE sending cards, but it’s only a family photo this time. My hubby is known for his witty and informative Christmas letter every year, and I’m sad that we aren’t sending the letter out, but I totally get it!
Here are some Christmas photos from years past!
and my VERY FAVORITE…..Because this is really how pictures go….
