This is the week to get your cards in the mail, whether you're celebrating Christmas or Hanukah or any other holiday which occurs at this time of year: hop to it and get your cards done this week! Doing so really adds to your own holiday joy and certainly to others as well.
The card may be store bought or maybe you've planned in advance and ordered engraved cards to send for the holiday--whichever, just address them, add a personal greetings, sign them, stamp them and send them off.
I don't keep all the cards I receive, but I have kept some from over the years. The one below must be 15 years old, maybe older. I love the story it tells:
In the final accordion image the boy has climbed atop the snowball he built to reach the star--how magical!
Below is a card I sent out for many years, having bought up a stock of it when I first found it. I now reserve the final two for my own pleasure and memory. It reads:
"A Future Unremembered Poet of the Seventeenth Century accepts a Christmas Cookie from the Great Veiled Bear"
pure Christmas magic.
Here is a selection of cards I've sent out this year, plus two I've received. I love the vibrancy of the abstract Ellsworth Kelly, I sometimes send it out for other occasions as well.
Spread joy, send cards!
