A Note from Me to You

In a time where social media, email, text and everything in between dominates our form of communication, it’s comforting to see the art of sending holiday cards is not lost.

Over the past few weeks, walking to the mailbox at the end of the driveway brought nothing but joy, smiles and even a few chuckles.  Sure, there were bills in most of the day’s delivery, but accompanied with a stack of holiday cheer – the happy greetings softened the harsh blow of bills. Soon after Thanksgiving, the cards began to arrive and not a day passed us by without a merry message waiting for us at the end of a long work day.

But alas, as we near the end of the holiday season, the gleeful holiday cards no longer fill our mailboxes with their crimson red and balsam green envelopes.  It is such a pity these notes of cheer cannot continue throughout the year.  But then again, why not?

I would imagine others felt the same joy I did throughout this season, so why not try to write a friendly note or send a humorous card once every month or so to someone I haven’t spoken to in awhile?  Six cards between now and the next holiday season doesn’t seem too difficult to accomplish and I believe the rewards will be plentiful for all.

And who knows, maybe someone will return the favor and my Winter, Spring and Summer mail will have the occasional small tokens of joy as well!

  1. What a great idea! I felt the same way last month when I got a surprise card in the mail from a dear friend: http://thejerseygirl.wordpress.com/2011/11/21/today-im-thankful-for-snail-mail/

    Also, I just subscribed to a “postcard magazine” that sends out a “real” postcard to its subscribers each month with a poem, short story, or memoir written on it: http://hootreview.com How funny that we are in such awe when something good arrives in the mail!
