I agree with you. Christmas cards are traditional and an opportunity to give and receive thoughtful wishes to people we know. I suppose it is a little less popular than years ago, but it is still an important gesture. I for one like to see a personal note included, not merely a signature. I also Like Christmas cards that focus on the birth of Our Lord and the Bethlehem scene, not so much on Santa and secular greetings. The meaning of Christmas is not restricted to sentimentality and good feelings, although that is part of it. As a Christian, this holiday is a celebration of the birth of Christ as our Messiah who came to atone for our sins in our place, and with this, He gives us eternal life. I hope in my lifetime I never see this message of faith removed, as some in our culture desire to do. We cannot ever allow "Christ" to be removed from 'Christmas'. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
