Years ago I stopped sending Christmas cards in lieu of New Years cards. There were several reasons behind this move:
- Not all of my friends celebrate Christmas, but everyone around the world rings in the new year in some fashion.
- It’s easy to stand out from the crowd when your card arrives well after the Christmas decorations have been put away.
- And let’s face it, New Years cards are much more realistic with four kids, a full-time job, and all the rest of the added activity of December.
Here’s this year’s pile of photo cards on the counter at the post office, stamped and ready to be sent to friends and family across town and around the world.

What a great idea!
Thanks! It’s just one more thing we’ve done to reduce the stress of and truly enjoy the holidays! 🙂
I have never heard of that before, but it’s a fantastic idea. Did you actually find “New Years” cards in the store or did you make them?
I made them online via Costco. Do you have Costco in Canada? If not, most of the major online do-it-yourself photo card places offer a few New Year’s card options although there are definitely a lot fewer than Christmas card options. If you’re more artistic than I am, you can always use the blank template and build yours completely yourself. I prefer a template that I drag and drop a pic of the kids into and add a few words to complete. 🙂
Nice! I like that idea 🙂
