I hate them. I hate cards altogether if I'm honest no matter what celebration.
When it comes to Christmas Cards I wait for the neighbours to post theirs to us so I have their names then I quickly write one and get the girls to post it back

Nope - I always mean to do them every year, but never get round to it and hate having to write them.
I'll send them to close family maybe, or friends if we go out for a Christmas night out, but other than that I don't really bother these days.

I don't. 'Environmental reasons' (and I'm a lazy beach)
Always send to very closest folk though. At work I buy a couple of big tubs of chocs, and for friends I write a proper email :)

I only do family and a few friends, hate doing them so do as few as possible.
The only ones I send are to neighbours, my family and friends don't get them

Now I'm not working my Christmas card list has reduced by a lot! Still seem to have a lot to write though. H gets me to do quite a few for his work. I've got to get F writing some of hers then A will want to send her friends some so I think I really need to get on it! I always end up with a few cards that I haven't sent though, either haven't seen the person or I don't know the address or something. Such a waste.

I love to send christmas cards, though generally send them to people I don't see often. I don't bother for work people unless they are close friends. I like to recieve them too, I love having them around the room as part of my decorations.

I only send a few, to friends who have moved away, couple of the neighbours and then I usually do moonpig photo cards from our boys to grandparents. I don't send cards to family. I too am. It keen on Xmas cards, I've not no where to put them. I would rather donate money to a charity.

No I think they're a waste of time and money. The only ones I send are to friends and family that I won't see around Christmas- like my bestie who lives in Singapore , I like to write a note in them as well, rather than just "merry Xmas"

I used to love doign them, would write loads and include a message in all of them. Last year I couldn't face doing them and I haven't done them this year so I just don't know. I used to cherish the ones I received as well. Maybe I'll feel a bit better in a few years but at the moment I just don't know.

I do them but I find it such a chore. I sat and wrote some out last night but had to stop after half hour. Won't be sending as many this year.

I don't do many, just family and neighbours, I don't put any we receive up though because they look cluttered
This is our Xmas card this year

I like giving and receiving cards.
I spend ages finding a nice one for my Mum, as she loves OTT sentimental ones.

I don't tend to write any, and tbh I aren't a fan of receiving them either. They make the lounge look cluttered.
