So this is our first married Christmas and I need to get my cards out ASAP.
Who do you guys send them too? I know immediate family, but what about extended family, co-workers etc.
Any guidelines will be helpful. Thanks!

I’m only sending out about 30–immediate family and close friends for us.

I sent them out to immediate family and close friends, but have extras for any cards we receive from someone we didn’t have on our list

Thanks. I was talking to one of my co-workers and she told me that she sent out 150 cards over the weekend and today I started receiving cards from my neighbors and I just wasn’t sure.

We sent out over 80 cards this year. I have a large extended family and I do send them to some former coworkers, etc. However — and I know it’s not supposed to be about this — I have noticed that some of our people haven’t sent us a card in the 4 years we have been married. I heard that if you haven’t heard from someone in 3 years it is considered rude to continue sending them cards, so I think our list will be a lot smaller in 2011!
(Also, I ran into a former co-worker who remarked that my card was “expensive looking” for someone “in my situation” [meaning unemployed]. So maybe sending it to coworkers/former coworkers isn’t such a good idea!)

My general rule is that I send to immediate family and friends, and if someone else sends me a card usually or has the last year, I send to them.
