My Favorite Card

Gone are the days of stamped envelopes that land in your mailbox around or on Christmas day. It seems that the new trend for sending holiday wishes is all being done electronically. Call me out of date but I still love holiday cards; ones that I can tear open the envelope and discover its contents. It’s feeling the paper’s texture in my hands. It’s seeing its colorful scene before my eyes. It’s flipping the card open to read the message inside. I’m picking a favorite that arrived yesterday via the USPS way. It’s from an elementary school in Leominster, MA that has this season all figured out.  St. Anna’s, hands down, you sent my favorite holiday card.

To wrap up this thought, Anatole Broyard, the American writer, literary critic and editor for the New York Times once said, before electronic holiday cards were inundating our inbox, “In an age like ours, which is not given to letter-writing, we forget what an important part it used to play in people's lives.”
