To Give Or Not To Give Christmas Cards?

If you will ask me that question, I will certainly say YES. I am old school. I like giving, rather, I love sending out personalised cards to my family and friends via post. I like the fact that I take time to personally write the dedication and addresses on the cards. It has more personal and human touch to it than sending out generic e-cards. While sending out e-cards does not defeat the purpose of letting your family and friends know that you are well-thought of this Holiday Season, it is just not my cup of tea.

Some people may be in a pickle at the moment and debating within themselves whether to send a card or not. Well, let’s make it easy for you to decide. Pick up some tips and pointers from the infographic below and you decide accordingly.

What ever it is you decide to do, it’s okay.
