I’m not really any kind of faith and my friends are all over the map, so I just send out “holiday” cards with snowmen or wintery type scenes on them. I think this year I ended up with some that have Christmas trees on the front, so I’ll be sure to send them to friends I know celebrate Christmas. I don’t send anything religious since I’m not religious myself, so it would be weird coming from me! LOL! That being said, I always have a Hannukah card for one of my BMs and we exchange Christmukah presents 😉

I send Happy New Years! cards. It makes it a lot easier not to offend anyone.  Plus I think it’s so fun. It’s different and something a little special after the fact. LOL.

We’re interfaith and do cards that include “happy holidays and happy new year” – last year (our first year to send cards as a couple), our cards had a green plaid print on them, and a picture of us.

This year we plan to do something similar.

We do a sort of mix. For coworkers, some relatives, and most friends we send a card with a pretty wintery scene and well-wishes for health, happiness, etc. We also found a set of cards that show the place we got engaged but covered in snow, and there’s a red-ribboned wreath in the picture. Those we will send to close family and friends regardless of their denomination, and will write in the appropriate wishes.

Usually all of our cards look neutral and we write in what we feel is appropriate. It has less to do with who celebrates what… and more with sending out good thoughts universally.

We were planning on sending out Holiday cards after we got married (so, next year) that aknowledge both religions specifically. It will say “Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas”. I don’t see any reason why I should be warry of offending people when we are aknowledging both and we obvioulsy have a great respect for both… otherwise we wouldn’t be married. Plus it will save us a TON of time, money, and headache not having to make seperate cards and figuring out who gets what and not accidentally sending the wrong card to the wrong person.

we won’t technically be interfaith since i’m converting, but since our families are two different religious we’re sending out happy new year cards that are neither red and green nor blue and silver 🙂

I’m of the opinion that you can’t go wrong with “Happy Holidays” or “Seasons Greetings.” I usually pick one with a snowflake or a present on it for good measure.

We sent New Year’s cards this year. Much easier than trying to decide which religion’s holiday(s) to mention, and less devisive.
