Birthday Cards

Would I be right in thinking birthday cards are on the way out?

In my family the old folks set great store by choosing the right one and making sure it arrives on time and the kids mostly don't send them at all. My generation- somewhere in the middle- sends cards in a spirit of conformity but wishes it didn't have to.

Am I generalizing from too small a data base or have I spotted a trend?
