ALL greeting cards* as it goes for me.
Can't stand them. Cynical ploy by the big manufacturers to make a heap of cash via emotional blackmail. Cost a packet, stupid cracker style sentimentality and clutter up space trapping dust for nearly a month.
But the tradition of "sending" Christmas cards is particular ridiculous, especially if you happen to work in an office.
Everyone buys a mega box of cheap and nasty cards and then patiently waits for the first one to give out cards. Then it's a mad rush to write yours out and hand them to everyone you work with. Yup, the exact same people you'll be seeing every day until the festive hols kick off.
And you proudly display them on your desk as if it's a sign of how popular you are. But everyone has the identical numbers...
Of course there are sometimes oversights where someone is forgotten, but you nip out to the bogs, fill in the name from your box of spares and rush back in saying it was in your coat pocket and peace is restored.
Unless you don't, for whatever reason, give a card to someone who has sent you one- then it's akin to declaring war and the feud can last for years.
It's so funny to watch.
Best thing I ever did was to make a big declaration to the masses asking them politely to miss me off the office carousel and despite not having sent any cards in decades I still got quite a few from people.
Which was nice.
Happy Christmas everyone...
*Post cards excepted as it's nice to send a small memento from your hols to people just to say "ha, ha- we're here having fun and you're not 'cos your at work" but that is entirely another tale...
