Christmas cards – especially personal ones – have fallen out of fashion in recent years. Most people just send out a photo card with a generic greeting to everyone – even their closest friends and family. And most cards get tossed after the holiday season is over -- since there is no reason to save a card that has no sentimental value attached to it. But this year might actually be different. According to an op-ed in theNew York Times, people are not only taking the time to send meaningful, personalized cards this year, but they are addressing the pandemic as a way to connect and commemorate a year that has been filled with uncertainty. From family photos that include everyone wearing masks, to sentiments of hope, it seems holiday cards will be more meaningful this year -- and might provide a real bright spot for everyone missing their loved ones during the holidays.
