Cards: e- or greeting?

Do you still send out actual, physical cards?

 

I still do, but I think half of my friends send me e-cards, which I find lame.

 

Ooops...guilty as charged. Well not always, but if I just want to say hi to an old friend or relative in the middle of the week for no particular reason, which I do a lot, then e-cards are just more fun and a little more personal than an email that says "hi"

IMO anyway.

the greatest beauty is

Organic wholeness, the wholeness of life and things,

the divine beauty of the universe.

Love that, not man apart from that,

or else you will share man’s pitiful confusions,

or drown in despair when his days darken."

Last Wednesday was my birthday and I received abut 45 greetings through Facebook, two e-greetings and two physical cards through USPS. While grateful that friends and relatives remember me at all, I find Facebook birthday greetings less than satisfying because I know there is a reminder available there and basically Facebook is doing the remembering. Don't like e-cards at all---I mean the ones that come from sites which either sell or give away video greetings. Love those that sent me birthday cards through the mail---and I hope that doesn't disappear before I die.

I had gotten into the habit of sending ecards to large numbers of people for many reasons recently. Wanting to get back to being more personal with those closest to me, I have started sending paper cards through the mail--have gotten a great deal more and genuine responses from recipients this way. Still send ecards for general keep in touch or fun times.

I have never laughed so hard at someecards, which more often than not I find to be absolutely brilliant. The only printed card series I think is consistently funny are the ones with the vintage photos and the snarky typed comments. I'd much rather have a good belly laugh than a physical card any day.

I'm with you. I carefully select cards for all occasions along with special stamps to accompany them; I find this to be oh so much more persona and meaningful

than a friggin' e greeting. E greetings are so impersonal; thus I "do the cards" and will continue to do so until I no longer can!
