I love the Christmas season for a lot of reasons, one is getting all those cards in the mail with pictures of those whom you talk to or see only once a year, in their Christmas card.
This year in our home, we chose to be more Green and send eCards. There is no envelope or card to recycle, and there is a significant cost savings, no cards to print or stamps to buy. This allowed us to send to many, many more than we would have otherwise.
There are some great eCards sites, and many have add a photo options, so that you can upload that yearly image to send to your friends and family. The colors of Christmas are red and green, this year, I focused on green :O)
