Christmas Cards [Dec. 13th, 2009|12:42 pm]
Tony Grist
We're not sending Christmas cards this year. Ailz says it's because she wants to give the money we'll save to a deserving charity. I say it's because I just don't want to.

Christmas cards belong to an age before there were Facebook and Twitter- and the telephone- and all those other new-fangled ways we have of keeping in touch. The sending of cards has become a socially-enforced ritual. There's very little joy in it.

Ailz's mother says we should at least send cards to family. I say family- the people with whom we're most frequently in touch- are the last people we should bother with.

I love to send cards... love it. But I won't do it unless I have the time to paint my own and compose the poem on the inside. Sending storebought cards gives me no pleasure.

What you're doing is completely different. You're not sending cards, you're sending gifts.

I had not thought of it that way. Hmm!
