And checking it twice (or more) isn’t just Santa’s job. That’s because I do (nearly) the same thing around this time using a different list.
MY list is our annual holiday card list — politically correct cause not all the folks we send greetings to celebrate Christmas.
The list is ever-changing; usually it gets longer even though every December thoughts of shortening it come to mind. The list is stored on my PC so I can make any adjustments throughout the year.
Yes, postage costs keeps rising — on Jan. 27, 2013 it’s going up another cent to 46 cents for a first-class letter. A little good news (?) is that in addition to the U.S. “forever” stamp, the USPS is introducing a global “forever” stamp to mail first-class letters anywhere in the world for a set price of $1.10. (Prices now vary depending on the international destination.)
OK back to holiday cards which were started this week — way earlier than past years. The cards are blank inside (no pre-printed greetings) so including a personal message in each card and addressing them takes awhile — NOT a complaint, just saying.
MY work area on the dining room table looks like this . . .
HOW about you — do you like sending or receiving cards ? And, feel free to share YOUR favorite holiday tradition in a comment.
