Proverbs 11:25 NLT
The time is nearing for sending out our "Christmas Cards" to family and friends, all across the Country! But wait!!........am I out of the loop? Is this becoming a tradition of the past?
I have always enjoyed sending out Christmas Cards and I must say that I am a super happy recipient when I open the mailbox and find card after card addressed to the "Pollard Family."
I have very fond memories of Christmas's past, when lots of Christmas Cards were mailed out.......... but not before the sender had written a personal message and a special Christmas greeting to wish my family a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
Can you imagine the excitement years and years ago, when children would see a card such as this, that the family had just received from friends? As I view this particular card, I see so much imagination built in. What a thrill it would have been, just to dream of having that small, teeny tiny, candy cane.
Isn't this a delightful message?
I so enjoy this stage in my life, as I reminisce about the 'good ol' days' of Christmas's past.
I believe that once again.....this "tech" world that we live in, has stolen some of our Christmas traditions that once put that extra tidbit of jingle in our Christmas Spirit.
I believe that E-cards have replaced the personalizing of our Christmas greetings to one another.
I know that the cost of postage stamps has also had an effect on the way many people choose to send out greetings.....BUT.....once again, I think of all the wonderful smiles on peoples faces, when they open the mail box to find a pile of Christmas Cards, just waiting to be opened.
My childhood days at Christmas were wonderful, fun, and full of excitement. This was great family time! I can still see all of the Christmas Cards that people sent.....hanging on the walls in our living room. This was special.......I can't even begin to tell you how many hours throughout the Christmas Season, that my siblings and I, would LOOK at those cards......over and over again!!
Just happy thoughts here, that I would love to see continue for my grandchildren!
What would be your take on the sending of Christmas Card Sending??
