@oracle: I wouldn’t worry about it.  I have a really good friend who was going through a terrible breakup right after I got engaged.  I was afraid to talk about anything happy or wedding-related in front of him because I felt like it would sort of be like twisting the knife in his heart – but he has told me that even though he’s going through a crappy time, he is still happy for his friends when they’re happy.

I am sure that your friends are happy for their friends, even if they are facing their own challenges right now.  If you want to send them a Christmas card, I think you should send it!  Maybe you could even write a little note in there saying “Thinking of you & sending you hugs!” or something?

@oracle: I agree, I think it might make them feel sad. Maybe you could just get them regular greeting cards, with a little note inside that you are thinking of them and will be there if they need a should to lean on

@MrsSl82be: That’s a good option, too!  @oracle: If your gut is telling you to skip the picture card, but you still want to send a holiday greeting to these guys, send them a regular card without pictures with a nice note inside.

Either way, I am sure they will appreciate a card and a note saying you’re thinking of them.

@MrsSl82be:  ditto. I did the same thing. I have friends going through a divorce and we got married around the same time… I also realize im looking into it to much…but it is christmas after all…so i sent them a normal holiday card instead of a picture one.
