Give Me Five Monday

I know it's not Monday, but I just found this Meme and had to join in!

Give Me Five things about Christmas/Holiday cards: buying them, getting them ready, sending them, receiving them, displaying them, tips for recycling them, getting/sending 'family newsletters', traditions, pictures, etc.

1. I love, love, love sending Christmas cards!! I try and send them every year to family members, friends, and a few people I don't correspond with frequently but still enjoy keeping in touch with.

2. For the past 2-3 Christmases, I've been participating in a card exchange on my favorite message board. I send 15-20 cards and receive about that many-- so much fun!

3. The holiday/Christmas cards I receive are hung around a door or window on display and stay there until the end of January, probably. Once I get into the Christmas spirit, I just can't stop and hate to take down the decorations!

4. I enjoy reading the "brag letters" people send about their families. Most of the families we get them from have 5+ kids so it's fun to watch the kiddos grow up!

5. Every year, I buy Christmas cards after Christmas. By the time Christmas rolls around again, I have forgotten that fact and the result is many more cards than I need!

  1. This is a great first GM5 post!! Thanks for participating! I love that you forget that you buy cards...I always forget where I put them away and can't find them the next year! So I started packing the cards with the fall/Thanksgiving stuff in order to find them before I drag out the Christmas stuff LOL
