Are you sending this year? It feels tone deaf to me...
Thinking of doing them because we like receiving them. Maybe writing during these difficult times, we are thinking of you and your loved ones.
What would be tone deaf about it? I'd think receiving a card with a personal line or two would be nice for most people. Particularly since many can't see families and friends.
I am OR above. I also wondered if it was tone deaf. Like hey look at us our life is great despite the pandemic. That’s why I thought we would write a message that we are thinking of them and wishing them well.
Also unclear why it would be tone deaf. I guess if one views holiday cards as an opportunity to brag? Usually ours has a family photo and a one liner wishing our friends and family well...
I was going to but now you are making me rethink it.
Same here! I thought it would be so nice to be in touch at least via cards but I certainly don’t want to look insensitive.
@Anonymous I really don't get how sending a nice note and picture to family and friends is deemed insensitive. I plan on sending out cards. 2020 has been horrible for everyone. What's wrong with letting loved ones know you are thinking of them and spreading a little joy? We all need a little joy now more then ever.
I was thinking of sending a simple holiday card without no photo of a family trip.
ITA! I think cards are nice and a simple message would be more fitting this year.
Particularly this year, I’d prefer to see pics of my friends and family
Did high holiday cards, not doing regular holidays. Fun fact: if you send them on Paperless Post you can see who bothers to open them and how quickly. I think my fastest was 6 seconds 👍
If we're in lockdown, a card with a thoughtful note is a nice way of connecting. "Thinking of you....Wishing you a healthy and happy 2021." Or something. I would do cards that are a bit more traditional or simple instead of big and bright.
I'm sending them. I love receiving holiday cards in the mail and my favorites are the ones with pictures of people's kids, families, etc..
I think new year cards are more in order this year. Everyone is excited about 2020 coming to an end. New year, new president, new congress, new vaccine.
I don't think holiday cards are tone deaf. If you want to send a picture of your family in front of your beach house all dressed in coordinating white with a banner across the front that reads "So Much to be Grateful For," then yes, that could be considered tone deaf this year.
