And so it comes to the time of year when I set my mind around penning the annual christmas letter, and compiling the christmas card list, and here’s the thing…

I absolutely love to receive christmas cards and interesting, thoughtful mail from people. I also enjoy sending the same.

This said, I also believe that one should give because one wants to give, not because out of obligation, and that you shouldn’t solicit cards to be sent to you. For this reason I am not requesting you to send me addresses. I will be sending christmas cards, but who is on the list and who isn’t is truth known only to me. If I intend to send you a card and I don’t have your address, I will ask. I like to receive cards in response, but I will not be cross with you if you don’t. Similarly, if you don’t receive a card from me, don’t read anything into it, the list has to stop somewhere.

With every good wish (and a smile)…

Season’s Greetings!
