How to Celebrate?

  • Send out your holiday and Christmas cards.
  • Make your own cards – your recipients will appreciate a handmade card.
  • If you don’t have time to send in physical cards, what about sending e-cards?
  • Don’t celebrate Christmas or the holidays? Why not send out New Year cards instead?
