Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories: December 4

(This is post 4 in the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories hosted by

Prompt: December 4 - Christmas Cards
Did your family send cards? Did your family display the ones they received? Do you still send Christmas cards? Do you have any cards from your ancestors?

There will be days in this Advent Calendar series where I don't have very good answers for the questions. This is one of those days.

My parents were not card senders. As far as I can remember, neither were my grandparents.

We did receive cards. They were propped on the book shelves in the living room. Later on, my mom kept cards in a basket. In fact, she still does this.

I inherited my parents' habit of not sending cards. Sometimes people get really upset when you don't send cards, which makes me really not want to send them. Thankfully, my husband has taken on the task. The cards will be mailed soon.

  1. Amy, your family card was the first one I received this year! It arrived yesterday.

  2. Got my 1st (of maybe 5 I will get) yesterday & it was from the Coffin's!!!! Mine go on the fridge, well the ones with pictures, until next Christmas when my new pictures start to roll in.
