    I would recommend doing separate notes.

    Did you ever know someone who had a birthday on Christmas?  Think about how they felt about combined gifts, or how you would feel with only getting one day of gifts a year.  Even when it’s someone who would only give a Christmas gift, the addition of “and birthday” kind of stings.

    It’s very practical and if you’re on a tight budget I can understand wanting to save on postage and effort, but I think that combining them has the potential to unintentionally insult people.  If you are not absolutely sure that your entire guestlist would be perfectly okay with a combination, you should probably be safe and separate the two.

    I would do a thank you note with at the end say “We hope you and your family have a very lovely Christmas and New year”

    Send them separately as they are for two entirely different things.

    2 cards 1 envelope sounds fine to me. I would find 1 card for both odd though.

    Do you usually send Christmas cards separately or would this be your first year? Fiance and I aren’t going to do Christmas cards for a few years because we can’t afford it, so if it’s a cost issue then you could just skip Christmas cards in the mail completely, at least for now. If it’s not a money issue then I’d say send them separately.

    @dec-bride: I personally would find two cards in one envelope much stranger than one combined Christmas and thank you card, I’d wonder if there’d been a mailing mistake, lol.

    It seems to me that thank you cards should be dedicated to that purpose only.
