Holiday Greetings!

’Tis the night before Christmas, and guess what? I’m not ready!

No surprise there. I often leave my holiday tasks until the last minute. This past weekend, I finally purchased presents for my nieces and nephews, and I finally finished the cards. Actually, to be honest, I started and finished the cards. Every year, I promise myself I’m going to get that task done earlier. This year, I put together the list and the labels the second week of December. But did I start the cards? Nope.

Christmas cards are a point of pride, I guess. I’ve lived in a lot of different places, working different jobs, and when I move on, I don’t promise to keep in touch. I do figure I’ll send a Christmas card, though. I change the list every year, so there are people on my list who weren’t a few years back, and people on lists from years past who are no longer there, for whatever reason.

I also am fairly particular about my cards. They must include a dove. Simple as that. The card must have a dove.

You can see some of my choices here. This one is my favorite; I just purchased two boxes, although I sent cards with this design several years ago. It’s a Picasso, and the inside says, “May the spirit of the holiday bring you peace and joy. Merry Christmas.” Nice and simple.
