2010 was the first year in more than a decade that I sent no Christmas cards at all. I had intended to, but time just got away from me.
I received a total of about five this year, the least ever.
The most-recent Patrick’s Place Poll asked readers about their own Christmas Card accomplishments during the past year. Here were the results:
Did you send Christmas Cards out in 2010?
44% – Yes, always.
33% – No, for the first time this year.
22% – No, not in a while.
I wish I had asked this poll in past years, because I would guess that this might be the first year that the No responses might have outnumbered the Yes responses.
Are you planning to send them this year? I actually am. I plan to use the box I bought for this year.
