Like most people I like to send out Holiday Greeting cards every year. Some years I’m organized early enough to get all the cards on my list sent out. Other years have been more difficult. With the Holiday Greeting Card System I set up 5 or 6 years ago it’s been a lot easier to send out at least some cards, even when things have been a little out of control in my life.
In my November newsletter I talked about getting started with the system so it will be easier and more fun to send out cards this year. Well, I have to admit I haven’t looked at my list until today. Each year I update any addresses on the list by writing them in by hand. Eventually I need to update it on the computer and print out a new copy. I think this is the year to do it since way too many people on my list have new addresses.
The way I have my list set up it makes it easy to know how many of each kind of card I need to purchase. I send out Season’s Greeting cards to people I don’t know for sure what their religion is. I send out Chanukah cards to all my Jewish friends and family. And I send out Christmas cards to all my Christian friends and family. A few I even send out specialty cards for friends and family that celebrate both Christmas and Chanukah. Those are harder to find and need to be purchased early.
The post office lists December 20, as the last day to mail cards if you want them to be there by Christmas. That’s only 5 weeks away!
So this week I’m going to update my list and purchase the cards. Then I can spend the evenings addressing a few at a time while watching TV.
