As nice as Xmas cards can be, especially when you are abroad, I really don’t see the point of sending them if all you are going to write inside is ‘lots of love, The Blah Blah’s’.
If you are using them to update or ask about the other person, fill them in on your past year or ask them the same, that’s worth the paper or else its just a pretty piece of wasteful cardboard in my eyes. And another ‘chore’ to do at Xmas!
Save the trees, save your time!
