One of my favorite parts about the Christmas season is the cards! I love making a photo card each year (except when I make a major oops) to send out to friends and family, and I love receiving cards too! I’ve never been able to write a letter–it’s too intimidating to try to sum up the year in a few paragraphs–but I love getting a glimpse into the lives of friends and family through their cards or letters.
I usually line up all our cards on the mantel, tucked among the garland and decorations.
But this year… no mantel! So I’ve come up with another solution. Remember our lighted garland hung around the doorway between the living room and kitchen?
Now it’s our Christmas card display! As each card comes in the mail, I clip it to the garland with a clothespin or paperclip.
It works for us!
Now that it’s mid-December, the garland is starting to fill up.
I love this time of year, surrounded by old and new traditions.
