Thought 1: I have always sent christmas cards to the subset of people i don’t see or talk to regularly and who i am not expecting to see at any point during the holidays (ie, a hey remember me, have a great holiday, kind of thing). I personally think it’s silly to send a card to someone i’m going to actually spend christmas day with or who i can wish a merry christmas to in person. Does this make me a bad person/bad mannered?
Thought 2: With the advent of Facebook, i’m in constant contact with all of my friends around the country. This kind of makes me want to put them in the “I talk to them all the time category”. Would a facebook post wishing merry christmas and maybe a picture to the individual person be acceptable, or is it somehow signing a card and putting it in the mail more personal?
