Christmas before last, I decided to send out my first-ever Christmas cards. I wanted to support a small business (rather than, say, Hallmark), so I ordered a set of festive notecards from Everyday Grace [with whom I am in no way affiliated].
For several reasons, the cards didn’t arrive in time to send for Christmas. Rather than shelve ’em for twelve months, I decided to send them as New Year’s cards. After all, none of them said “Merry Christmas,” they said either Peace, Joy, or Love… but would my friends be offended by a New Year’s card? Would they find the gesture somehow political or sacrilegious?
Nope! My friends tend to be fairly tolerant, and who doesn’t love getting real mail?
I still have five pretty Love cards with matching envelopes, and they’re free to a good home. Perhaps you could use a few extra valentines?
It’s almost the seventh of February now, so there’s no time to be democratic: The first person to leave a comment gets ’em, and I’ll mail them ASAP. Deal? Deal! International readers welcome, though there’s no way you’ll get the cards in time for Valentine’s Day.
