It's that time of year that we have to decide who to write out Christmas cards for and then have them sent overseas a million years early for them to make in time for Christmas. For years, we'd send out a ton of cards - to America, India, Canada, Australia, and recieve very little in return. This year, N has made an executive decision that we will not participate in this yearly ritual. In fact, just two people are on our Christmas card list this year: N's lonely aunt who always remembers us on card-worthy occasions, and N's friend in Canada who we've ALREADY RECIEVED A CHRISTMAS CARD FROM. No one else. I feel bad. I'm the sort of person who is quick and free with greetings cards, I'd love to send out birthday cards from everyone, new home cards, good luck cards, hope you feel better cards, just about anything really. But N's point of view is that we send out Christmas cards to recieve them (as opposed to sending holiday cheer). Is that a little Scrooge-ish? I can't quite make up my mind. So, for the handful of people who reads this blog and who I would have normally sent a Christmas card to and won't this year, I'm sorry. Know that I wanted to.
