Now, every year, I typically type up an annual Christmas letter. I am a writer, you know, so that annual letter is something I always look forward to drafting up. This year was going to be extra special, given my trip to Europe – I’d been looking forward to sharing some pics with family and friends.
But as December rolled around, I was feeling sluggish, still recovering from a recent surgery, and I almost didn’t send out cards at all. Finally, I begged my husband to help with the cards, and they got sent out…void of a Christmas letter. I felt bad, but I couldn’t worry about it; I still had to find the energy to go shopping for gifts.
As Christmas grew closer, the cards came in the mail. I opened each one and added it to our wall of cards. Here’s where the unusual thing happened: This year, for whatever reason, no one else sent us a Christmas letter, either! It was the oddest thing! I don’t want to over analyze it, but I thought it was worth bringing up, to see if anyone else saw a decline this year in Christmas letters, or even Christmas cards altogether.
