We’re having a silly fight, and he told me to come to the Hive to ask, so I am.
We’re sending Christmas cards this year. We have every year for the last 4 years. I always do them and he has little to no say, aside from me bothering him to get addresses for his family members (which takes forever. If they would just stop moving around, it would be so much easier).
I always do a Christmas card with a photo on it. One sheet, so people can stick it on their fridge. I try to do not too holiday-ish because I know my parents and grandparents keep it on their fridge all year long. This is the one I like this year, from Walmart.
For some reason, this year he has decided that Christmas cards should be traditional folded cards, with some sort of holiday picture/scene on it, with a photo of the two of us inside of it. Like these sort
So which do you think is “better”? I’ve always done the one sheet, photo included ones, and that’s what I was going to do this year, but he’s got an opinion on it all of a sudden.

I would put them IN a card. I don’t like to save cards, at all.. but I save pictures!
Plus, pictures can be put in an album [well, so can cards, but ive never seen anyone do that!]

I prefer the photo on the card, plus it is less work for you. Then I can put the whole thing up on the fridge.

I personally like to put a picture IN the card because that means you have to hand write a message in the card, instead of just a preprinted thing. I really value people taking time to hand write unique things 🙂

@Schatzie821: oh I write a hand written note on the back of the one sheet cards too! I agree, hand written notes are the best part of Christmas cards. My mom and I were just talking about how those page long, typed “this was our year” letters ruined Christmas cards.

I’ve done both but I like the photo cards (like the first picture) better. That way I can write messages on the back if I feel like it but don’t have to if I don’t want to. The regular cards are usually cheaper though, even when you factor in the cost of having the pictures printed to put in the card.

@DelilahDiamond: Okay that sounds good then! You are in the like <10% that writes on those, most just print the pic and send it. Which is better than nothing, I guess, but still, hand written ftw!

I always do photo postcards…This year 25 cards cost me $7 with shipping, add cheaper postage and its a win-win! I also write a personal message on the back.
I will usually save the photo cards also, or for yours, I would cut off the ‘christmas’ part and you still have a wonderful photo!
