I look forward to sending out greeting cards during the Christmas holiday season. Greeting cards are my way of saying that I am thinking of someone. Also, greeting cards help me to stay connected with family and friends whether in or out of the city. Hopefully, they will be happy to receive them. After all, my goal is to spread some holiday cheer.
Although people can stay in touch with each other through social media, it is much more personal when a greeting card is sent or received. It says to me that someone cares enough to remember with a card. I think it is thoughtful to express words in a greeting card. This means that someone took time to communicate in a special way. Now I love some social media, however I endeavor to keep in touch the old fashioned way, too.
I was happy to receive a few Christmas cards at the beginning of December. I know, I need to get in a hurry and send some cards out as well. I am not sure if there will be any delays in the postal delivery service. It will be good to send out the cards as soon as possible. Perhaps, this week will be a good time.
Someone may wonder why so much talk about sending Christmas cards. It’s an extension of a tradition with me. I learned to send cards just like my mother did several years ago. Years ago, it was a big deal to send and receive Christmas cards. My mother sent out several cards as well as received many in return. Thus, I have kept the tradition, but with less cards.
Greeting cards can help to cheer a lonely person during the holiday season. They can bring a smile to their face and heart. Also, a greeting card can brighten the spirit of a person who is recovering from an illness. It is good to reach out to those in need. You will benefit from it in a good way.
It is possible for a Christmas greeting card to send a message of hope. With all the trouble that is present in the world, people need to hear some good words. A greeting card can spark a desire in a person to pass on the message of hope. Maybe, that hope will spread to others who will keep it going. It is worth a try.
While sending Christmas cards is a good way to keep in touch with others, calls and visits do not have to be abandoned. If possible, it is good to call or visit family and friends. Although so many people are usually busy, it will be worth the effort. After all, life is too short to miss out on keeping in touch. A good mixture of calls, visits, and greeting cards can be fun.
Yes, you can see that I am partial to sending Christmas cards, but I do cherish making calls or visits. When I was younger, my grandfather made sure we visited relatives in and out of the city. I learned this tradition from him. Thus, I have learned some valuable ways to stay connected with family and friends. Whenever possible, I will continue to send Christmas greeting cards, make telephone calls, and visit family and friends.
