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 hate it! My husband will write most of them this year. The exception I make is to my former PhD supervisor, who gets cross if I don't send him a card with a letter saying what I've been up to all year. LOL I should get him to join LJ!

Everyone else can go hang. If like them, I will get a present to them or wish them Merry Christmas personally over a drink.
