Default Greeting cards

Do you send real greeting cards or e-mail greeting cards .I personally love to buy and send cards for all occasions + hanukah and christmas cards .However over the past few years I seem to be getting less real cards and more e-cards .

I only send paper cards!! I also call people when I have something to say, no texting!!
My 14 year old asked for texting on his phone for Christmas I told him I'll think about it. It seems like all social graces have disappeared with all this technology. We donít answer phone during dinner time and all cell phone are turned off inside the house. Also no phones go to school.

I still send paper Christmas cards and birthday cards, etc. but seem to receive less and less of them every year. I've always liked to write, so maybe that's why I still do it....

Last year I reconnected with a relative and she said "I will give you my home address but never send greeting cards ,if you desire to do so send an e-card ."

Def real paper Greetings Cards! and Thank you cards etc.

The only senders of email Christmas cards I knew were the crew of vessels when I worked in the shipping industry. Location of vessel made it more difficult to send regular mail.

My DH and I send real cards. As others have said, it seems like fewer people reciprocate. We don't get e-cards, either. In the case of paper, maybe people don't want to spend postage money.

Amongst my friends and family, I know no-one who sends anything but 'real' Christmas cards purchased fron charities e.g. Cancer Research - I maybe send 100 per year. When a regular sender of Christmas cards does not send one - alarm bells are set off!
