I suspect it will depend greatly on where people live, i.e. Town, City or
We are in a village and many around us are elderly so things have not
changed a great deal with the card sending habit.
I think the sending of a card by post is much nicer, dearer I will grant you
but much more personal. E greetings always seem a little impersonal by
I think e greetings have their place, for example when sending overseas but
its a better experience opening an envelope.
The sending of e greetings is a bit of a towny thing, around here the older
generation do not have the computers or access to them to send e greetings.
No doubt in time things will change but not just yet (well not here anyway

> Hello trivvies,
> I'm interested to know if you send Christmas cards through the mail. I
have read that the first Christmas cards originated in England in the
1840's. When I was younger, many people sent cards through the mail. Now,
with "free" email and the rising cost of postage, sending cards seems to be
a dying tradition here in the states. I will be sending about 20 cards this
year. Twenty years ago I sent about 40 a year.
