Christmas cards: you can’t win, can you?
If you send Christmas cards, you are not green because you chop trees.
If you don’t send any, you are a miser.
If you send e-cards, you are lazy.
If you don’t send charity cards, you don’t care at all.
If you print addresses from Outlook onto sticky labels (guilty!), you are lazy and impersonal.
If all you write is your name underneath the printed greetings, you could not care less.
If you include a long update on everything that has happened to you over the last twelve months, you have too much time on your hands and deluded that people actually care.
But if you include a personal wish, a few warm words that are tailor-made for your loved ones, you are a (Christmas) star.
Having said that, any of the cards listed above makes me happy. So email away at firstname.lastname@example.org! I hear Critter Carols could be this year’s Elf Yourself.
