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'm down to close family and close friends on my list, because I don't see the point in exchanging umpteen cards with people you never hear from outside of Christmas. If I can make the cards myself, I do, but this year I didn't have time to cross stitch them so I opted for cards sold by our local hospice. Helps a good cause, and a short note in each card tells friends and family that we are thinking of them.

We've been cutting down and cutting down until there's nothing left to trim.
