Call me crazy, but I just don't understand the point. I love getting cards from people, but I just don't understand why people take the time to send out a card with nothing wirtten in it except their names. People tell me it's so that we feel "remembered", but honestly I usually just open the card, glance at it, and throw it in the pile with the rest of them. I really enjoy getting a card with a little note in it and I feel like if you are sending out too many cards that you can't take the time to write a little something, then you probably shouldn't be sending that many cards! Now, I'm still living under my parent's roof until I finish college, but when I send out christmas cards to friends I send them to those I feel I want to keep in touch with. Many of the people my family receives cards from we don't hear from all year! I do like the cards with pictures in them, but we received a couple cards yesterday with nothing except "Dear ____, From ____". I was grumbling to my dad about it, but he didn't seem to understand Just seems like card giving has become such a formality these days! I probably sound like an ungrateful person, but really I just wonder why people are so depressed over the holidays, and yet they don't see that forcing themselves to send out cards, buy gifts, etc. is probably the cause!
