A Special Christmas Card

December 7, 2007


This Special Christmas Card arrived in my email box two nights ago. It is not the first Christmas card I received in 2007 but it is the very first Christmas card from a blogger friend. Although I am an old-fashioned girl who loves to receive my letters & cards in the old-fashioned way, i.e., via post, this meaningful card from a wonderful friend is very much appreciated from the bottom of my heart.

THANK YOU, Zai for your “big bear hug & muaaackkk”. My card is slowly making its way to you via the snail mail. 😉


Do you like receiving Christmas cards in the old-fashioned & time-consuming way?

Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself…
~Norman Wesley Brooks, “Let Every Day Be Christmas,” 1976~

    I gave up on Christmas cards a long time ago, I am sad to report.. *sigh* In fact, I gave up on all kinds of cards, and letters, and parcels, but what I really really wish to give up on are those BILLS!! 🙂

    Never give up on Christmas cards or all kinds of cards & letters, LB.
    Please email me your postal address & it will be my pleasure to send you a Christmas card. 🙂

    Bills!! What’s life without them? 😛

    Of course the old-fashioned ways! I keep every single postcard/letter I’ve received b4…. They hold precious memories eh!

    E-mails should only be used when doing some formal things or during emergencies where the other party needs a quick reply. Those seasonal greetings, warm letters should stick to the traditional way!

    *gives Kyh a double high 5* 😀

    LOL @ LB! I’d love to give up on bills, too. or have someone else pay for them… kkkkk!

    I still send Christmas cards, etc via post. it’s that personal touch. e-cards are great though, for emergencies i.e. you forgot about it until the hour before!

    May, are you willing to pay help LB pay his bills??? 😆

    I agree with you..besides, the handwriting makes a great difference. 😉

    Oooh very nice indeed. Love the change in the template, btw. Very festive 😛

    Yeah, I’m like you too. Love sending and receiving the actual cards too. And if they’re ecards from someone special, I actually either PDF them, or print them out 😛

    Thanks, Tine. Glad you like it. 🙂
    Time really flies.. 18 days before Christmas.

    Hey! Great minds think alike. I do that with my ecards too. 😀

  6. Nothing beats that personal feel of a Christmas card or letter in your hand.

    Ditto, Giddy Tigress. 🙂

  10. Sha Says:

    I prefer my cards handwritten and sent by snail mail. In fact I used to make lovely xmas cards and sent them out every year!

    Used to??? Not anymore, Sha?

  11. _butt Says:

    wow… some pretty card you’ve got 🙂 I liked sending out cards and stuff… but when I looked at my handwriting on it… hmm…

    _butt, it’s not your handwriting that matters.. it’s what you write that matters most to the heart. 😉

  12. _butt Says:

    oh, hope you have a happy weekend! 😀

    Same to you, _butt.
    Thanks. 😀

  13. Angele Says:

    The old fashioned way definitely! It’s another form of excitement to receive a card by post.Then you open the envelope and discover the card inside 😀

    Don’t forget the part when you read the handwritten message, Angele. 😉
