How much do you worry when…

…you don't receive a Christmas card from someone you hear from every year at this time (and it typically is your only contact with that person)?

What if…

…everyone adopted a policy of sending Christmas cards only to those who had already sent them one?

Here’s a game you can play at home

If you receive a fair number of family-photo Christmas cards, here's a thought.

After the holidays, you can cut out faces and cast your own sitcom. Mix and match for minutes of fun!

“Here's the story…”

Christmas cards from near and nearer

My wife and I received a family-photo Christmas card from the young couple across the street.

We like them and hope they will stay in the neighborhood for many years. It's my fantasy that their older child, a preschool boy named Franklin, will eventually refer to me as “Old Man Turner.”

Anyway, it made me wonder.

How many people receive cards in the mail from people who live right next door?

It’s a funny thing

There are those who genuinely enjoy receiving Christmas cards even though they send out zero themselves.

Revenge of the recent newspaper retiree

My favorite Christmas card this year came from a former colleague. It features a happy scene from “It's a Wonderful Life.”

 After the seasonal sentiment printed on the card, there's a hand-written note.

“And Happy New Year to you, in jail!”

The “in jail” part is crossed out and beneath that is written “at the S-R!”
