I realized this year that I do have a favorite part of Christmas besides watching my child bouncing around in delight. It is the Christmas cards. It is the one time of the year when you go through all of your records and address books to find all those friends that you don’t speak to or see the rest of the year.
My absolute favorite card is the picture card. Yes, I can see my friends and their children on all the Internet sites these days, but there is something special about receiving the card in the mail, along with any news updates. I don’t even need the news updates, but it’s all good.
It just adds to the warmth and good will that the season brings, and you feel happy that everyone has made it through another year.
Happy smiles all around.
