  • Question of the Day 11/29/22

    Good Tuesday, everyone!

    Who do you know who still sends real, hard copy greeting cards? I know a lady, a former co-worker, who sends cards all the time. Sympathy, birthday, all kinds

    I send almost no greeting cards. I do send a handful of Christmas cards, but that’s it.

    We send about 150 Christmas cards every year. I send birthday cards to certain people throughout the year -- especially the elderly homebound members of our church. I also send thank you, sympathy, and congratulations cards as needed.

    I still make and send greeting cards for birthdays and Christmas and all the other major holidays.

      Echoes rella, though I do cheat with a card from a Hallmark assortment when particularly lazy.

      In fact, making a bunch of cards is my bad weather project this winter.

      I send about a dozen Christmas cards that I buy in a box at Dollar Tree and that’s it.

        We make and send about about 60-70 Christmas cards (continuation of the Passporter Christmas Card Exchange) plus my own family/friends list.

        I send LovePop cards to my parents several times a year for holidays and as general surprises. My Dad is fascinated by the engineering and my mother just enjoys them (they have bouquets,
        too, so it’s a nice way to send flowers).

          I do...I send cards all year long.
          That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most.

              My mom sends cards for any occasion - birthdays, anniversaries, thinking of you, new home, just because, sympathy - you name it, she sends a card. I’m not a card person, but I do like to receive them and think it’s sweet that my mom still sends cards. Every now and then I get a thinking of you card from her and it brings me the biggest smile.

                We do. I've just done our Christmas cards (about 50) and they're either in the post or with family and we do family birthday and anniversary cards throughout the year.

                Enjoying some relaxation time on the Transatlantic cruise on the Disney Magic - I'm Cheryl and with my husband Mark, we love visiting Disney and exploring the world...

                  I love sending cards. My Christmas list is at about 25 people.

                    I send around 60 Christmas cards every year.

                    I try to handwrite sympathy notes and thank you notes.

                    I'm really over sending birthday cards, but I do send them to my parents, plus cards for Mother's Day and Father's Day.

                    Oh, and a card with money to any new graduate I know who is clever enough to send me an announcement. 😁

                      I have a 2nd cousin (My cousin's daughter) who is mentally and developmentally challenged. She sends EVERY single person in the family a hand-made birthday card every year. I look forward to them as it gets closer to my birthday (next month!!)
