This is our second Christmas back home and I’m getting back to being very English and sending my Christmas cards along with some newsletters. I remember well, before the advent of computers, writing out these letters several times and sending them to relatives and what a drag it was.
When we arrived in Austria, we sent cards and letters in our first enthusiasm, then as the years went, as Austria really doesn’t do them, I went with the flow and didn’t send any. Laziness and cost were also excuses.
Now I’m back, and especially in our new church home, I was given a load of cards and have thoroughly enjoyed writing, with a fountain pen return ones as well as the ones I’d planned. I’m re-finding a small joy in receiving and giving them.
Do you write Christmas cards?

I must admit I do view the writing of Christmas cards as a bit of a chore. But every year I send them. However, it’s nice to receive cards, and so I’ll carry on sending them.
