instead of "holiday" or Christmas cards.
The days leading up to Christmas are so busy that if I did get time to send cards, I didn't have time to write any significant message.
When I would pick up the mail, I gave just a quick perusal of the cards I received and waited until after the holidays to enjoy reading the cards thoroughly.
I used Smilebox for my ecards
This year I decided to send a New Years ecard and use a photo from our family holiday vacation. I'm so glad I did. It only took minutes to execute and send. No paper, stamps, or $$ involved. Literally within seconds of sending the ecards, I received responses.
It has been so much fun to hear from people who received the cards, much more interactive and almost immediate gratification.
