I've never been very good with Xmas cards - but every year get quite a few and feel awful that I hadn't bothered.
Also - the thought of sitting down with three children and handwriting hundreds of cards when I could be watching telly cleaning the house does not appeal to me.
Is everyone else still doing them? Is anyone sending electronic cards or texts in stead?

How selfish of you ... I quite enjoy the occasion and letting others know that I think of them!

I know blush not quite the Christmas spirit is it? I find a glass or two of red wine makes me feel better though... until the next card arrives in the post.
I wish everyone would stop sending them!

I don't bother either really, but last yr felt guilty cos we had just moved in and neighbours sent us xmas cards and we hadnt sent back so we sent them all chocolate on xmas eve instead but dont think im gonna do anything this yr. I have had a card through already though and not even december!!

Chocolates - now that's not a bad idea ummziyad - I'd much rather be getting chocolates from my neighbours tbh.

I don't send any, but as I have twins and they get cards from their classmates, I end up having to send 40 cards anyway!!! By the way, I always give my luvly neighbours a bottle of vino, biscuits and choccies...

I did mine on Sunday night. Bought them from Private Eye so I had to weed out the very rude ones to make sure I didn't send them to Great Aunt Maude... shock

DP however is as useless as he was last year and his pile of cards is sitting there unwritten. (There is no way I will be doing his for him!)
