Hi Kat,
Yes I have sent out my Christmas cards but alas I have only received 1 card in return. I used to be able to make a big Christmas tree shape on my dining room wall with the cards I received but I can’t do this anymore unless I use blank ones….sad.

Yes I do think that sending Christmas cards is falling out of practice though I have always loved it. I have heard of hand written letter exchanges where a group of people join up to send a receive old fashioned letters. Perhaps there is one for Christmas cards? Kat x
