7 Good Reasons to Send Christmas Cards

When I think of December, some of my fondest memories are of writing personalized notes to each recipient of our designed family newsletter
by Jennifer Fulwiler | Source: NC Register

One of my favorite holiday traditions is sending out Christmas cards. Pretty much all the dedication and skill I lack in every other aspect of homemaking is concentrated in this one area: I might ignore mud stains on the couch, regularly forget to buy key ingredients for meals, and occasionally count a viewing of Dora the Explorer as our homeschool culture lesson for the week, but when it comes to Christmas cards, I dont mess around. When I think of December, some of my fondest memories are of writing personalized notes to each recipient of our meticulously designed family newsletter, a glass of eggnog to my right, a fire roaring in the fireplace to my left (on the nights when its not 70 degrees, anyway).

I know some folks are tempted to skip the whole thing, and I can understand why: It saves times during an already-busy season, it saves money on printing and postage, and were all in regular contact with one another anyway thanks to social media. But as the self-appointed spokeswoman for the tradition of sending Christmas cards, Im here to convince you that its still worth the time and effort. I believe that it will bless you and bless others to keep this time-honored ritual in your family repertoire, and heres why:

1. It gives you a chance to reflect on your year: When I sat down to write up our Christmas newsletter, a humorous one-page summary of whats been going on with us over the past twelve months, I was amazed at how much God has done in our lives in a single year! As I scrolled through my memories, starting with January, I kept asking my husband, Was that this year? If it werent for writing our Christmas letter, I dont think I would have ever taken stock of what happened in our lives in 2011.

2. Its easier now than ever: There are tons of businesses like Shutterfly and Snapfish that let you create Christmas cards online for a reasonable price. If you werent able to get everyone together for a family portrait, there are also plenty of options for cards that bring together individual photos to form a collage of family pictures. It usually takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish, and then youll have custom cards and envelopes delivered to your door.

3. It lets others know whats going on with you: Printing out a brief summary of your familys year is a great way to give others a snapshot of the most important things going on in your lives right now. Sure, they may have seen the individual mentions on Facebook, but its nice to have it consolidated in one place.

4. It keeps your address book up to date: I often hear people say that they dont do Christmas cards because they dont want to hassle with getting everyones current addresses, but I think that this is a big point in favor of the practice. Ive been surprised at how often its come in handy to have an updated address book: One time I felt moved to surprise an old friend a heart-felt birthday gift, and I was able to keep the element of surprise since I already had her address. On another occasion we sent a card of condolence to a husband whose wife died, and it was nice to be able to send it off without bothering him to get his address.

5. It gives your friends and family something to display: I love it when I go to other peoples houses during the holidays and I see pictures of their friends and family all over their mantles. In my own home, we have a special wall holder than can display up to 50 cards, and every time I pass by it I think of how blessed we are to have such wonderful friends and family members.

6. It blesses people who arent tech savvy: One of my favorite Christmas card stories is when we accidentally sent a card to the old address for some friends who moved. An elderly lady had moved into the house, and she sent us a long, hand-written note about how lonely shes been since her husband died and how much it blessed her to receive our card. Ever since then, weve exchanged cards every year. Keep in mind that there are still plenty of people out there who dont spent a lot of time online, and who deeply appreciate receiving notes the old-fashioned way.

7. Its an opportunity for evangelization: Every year we receive a surprising amount of positive feedback about Christmas cards: In particular, many of our non-Catholic friends remark about how interesting it is that we seem to have joy-filled lives, even though many aspects of our Catholic lifestyle go against what the world tells you you need to be happy. We dont usually talk about our faith in an explicit way in our cards (which is slightly disappointing to my husband, who would probably prefer to see our newsletter end with an all-caps call to repent and join Gods one true Church), but simply letting folks get a glimpse into the lives of a practicing Catholic family can be a powerful witness in and of itself.

Now, what are you waiting for? Go get started on your Christmas cards!
