Personally, I have never known anyone but Scrooge to be offended or annoyed by a holiday card! To each her own if she doesn’t want to send them out from her family, but I say go for it! My fiance and I spent part of our date night last night in Barnes & Noble picking out cute holiday cards to send to our families.

The only thing that annoys me are when pretty distant relatives send like, a novel of how their year went. I love photo cards and newsletters can be fun, just not when they’re ten pages :P.

I think friends and family will love the photo cards if you decide to go with them!

@jo.lee: Yeah, the bragging letters about people you barely know are annoying. The classic picture and card is always good, though!

I don’t mind gettiing cards at Christmas-time…but I don’t send them…I’m poor and for me right now they’re a waste of money.  I’m in school full time and have to save that money for better things.

I love getting holiday cards in any case, esp. those with pictures. Even if we’re not super close it’s nice to know they were thinking of you.

In this day and age, it’s always nice to get snail mail that’s not a bill. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sheesh!  It’s just a card and a LOVELY thought from your new family to those you consider dear.  Don’t let her sourpuss demeanor (it’s not realism, it’s just a nasty attitude) stifle you!.  I love receiving holiday cards and particularly if I couldn’t be there on your big day I’d love to see some pics of it!

Ok, there’s my “Mary-Sunshine” two cents!

I’m sorry if this is a dumb question, but what is a Yule card?

I will echo the rest and say don’t let your friend’s nasty attitude prevent you from sending the cards with your picture!  I love getting Christmas cards and especially ones with pictures.  I have never heard of people being annoyed by cards or feeling put out by the pictures! Most people keep and display their cards throughout the season so pictures just make it better ๐Ÿ™‚
