The mail that never comes

.

Do people still mail Christmas cards in our day and age?
Just wondering.
.
UPDATE:  It's at the entrance (decorated for Christmas) of what I think is called the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission in Jerusalem.
(Between Jaffa St. and Safra Square.)

Oh, yes, yes, yes in Virginia, USA. I received about 40 and mailed 50+. I love my Christmas cards.
And I very much enjoy and appreciate your blog. I learn so much. Thank you.

I received several this year and I always love them. I haven't sent them out for years because of the expense. 12 cards for something like $16, and postage keeps getting higher. So I usually do a new year's email. Not that I've gotten to it yet.

I think they still do from what I saw in Blogland . I wish we would still send our Shana Tova cards.I liked that.

Christmas cards? I probably sent a few the last century...

Suzanne said...

Yes, I still get cards and I love them mostly. Except people put in these newsletters that seem to either brag about all of the trips they've gone on or are filled with depressing news of illness and death.

I have a box of cards that I get out and send maybe one or two but then get so busy with the holiday that I put the box back for the next year, with the best of intentions of course.

Yes. We do and still receive many.

SARA MILLER said...

Yes yes yes I sent more than 60 cards and received a lot. With each card I sent a little parcel with bakery. Stars, bells etc. A funny thing to do.
Happy New Year.

I do, to closest relatives, understanding what a surprise the real cards make nowadays.

Jael said...

Such a pretty mailbox:) I got a few Christmas cards from my Finnish friends back in Finland, and I also sent some,but only to 5 closest friends there.It is very hard to find nice Xmas cards here anyway and those I found had text in Spanish....

I do still send real Christmas cards and got some in the mail this year too :)

Kay said...

Oh yes. People do mail Christmas cards. I still think it's silly to send a card with only your name on it. Even our banker puts a personal message in his card to us. 2/3 of our holiday newsletters went out by email though.
