To Christmas Card or Not Christmas Card...That is the Question.


Christmas cards always seemed, to me at least, like something families with children did--not a married couple with two cats. When Dave and I got married three years ago, I was 26 and still felt too young to send out Christmas cards. I thought, who cares about the two of us besides family? 

I personally am not a fan of the greeting card type of Christmas cards. Don't get me wrong, I love to get them, but I hate to send them. They seem too impersonal for me to send. And sending out a personalized picture card seemed too weird to send if it was just Dave, the cats and me. 

But this year I'm starting to feel differently. I want to send out personalized cards, even if it's just us and our fur babies. I flip flopped on the idea for a few days and decided that this year we would send them out. It feels a little weird still. I mean, we've been married three years and we're just now sending out the cards, with no kids? But I feel like I'm hitting that "age" where Christmas cards are okay to send.

So we attempted to stage some nice pictures in front of the camera, but they didn't look right. Then I thought back on the past year. All the ups and downs, highs and lows, and decided to just share a few pictures from our year, to sum it up nicely for family and friends while wishing them well for the holiday season. 

What are your thoughts? Do you send Christmas cards even if it is just you and your significant other? 


  1. I go back and forth each year on sending cards. I am skipping this year but kind of regretting the decision. Granted, I am not married, have no pets and no kids. So, that doesn't swing my decision very far in the "send them" direction!

  2. I sometimes send Christmas cards and it's just me. When I get married, I'll definitely send them even if we don't have kids.

  3. i got married in february and felt so strongly that we send out Christmas cards. we have no pets or kids. but i really really wanted to do it!! i did it through minted and they are so cute, they are being delivered tomorrow!! i can't wait!! my hubs put up a huge stink about it because it cost money, but i really wanted to do it!!

  4. We do cards! I've made them in the past--this year it was just a stamp on the front of a blank one lol I'm too tired and busy to make really fancy ones! Then I just pretty up a picture and print and stuff and boom! in the mail! I think it's nice, and people still want to see your pretty smile!!

  5. Steve and I didn't do them until last year. It was a collage of pics of us and the fuzzies. This year I'm not doing them because timing of the surgery, but I will do them again next year. Why should people with kids get all the fun of cute Christmas cards? F that!!!
