Advent Calendar Day 4 ~ Christmas Cards

Did your family send cards? Did your family display the ones they received? Do you still send Christmas cards? Do you have any cards from your ancestors?

My mom always sent Christmas cards.  She would normally sit in her chair while watching TV or listening to Christmas music on the radio writing them out.  She was from a big family and if I remember correctly, they also sent out cards.  We usually had between 20-40 cards hanging on the fridge, doorways, anything that could be used as a ledge.  I loved the glitter, the look and feel of Christmas cards.  There’s something completely different about a Christmas card!

Kara and I tried to do cards but for some reason, we’ve never got in the habit.  I would like to say we’re too busy but my mom would probably smack me in the back of the head for that comment with her own reply: “Make the time!”  The Christmas cards we do receive are placed around a door frame usually from the kitchen to dining or living room.  It’s a neat little tradition that we’ve continued.  We’ve place them at our kid’s height as they’ve grown so they could always seen them.
