Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Are we at a point in time, when anyone in our spheres of influence (i.e. work, home, family, friends … ) would be okay if we didn’t send out holiday/ birthday/ seasons greetings and merely posted a simple note such as ‘Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year’ on our blogs or webpages? Of course this message is sent out with all the warmth that would typically go in a greeting card and it would definitely beat the feeling that you may have forgotten to send out a card to someone. Besides, imagine how much paper you could save?

As a side note, this year’s lack of greeting cards being mailed out cannot be blamed on forgetfulness but rather on the the perils of laziness. Either way, next year I have two boxes of Hallmark cards waiting to be sent out. Amazing that I can prepare for events 365 days in advance.
