NWR christmas card vent

I have sent xmas cards in the past to many people... but really did not feel like it this year. I sent them out to fewer people last year too. FI said we are 'a-holes' because other people are sending us cards and I didn't do it this year. Now the people that did send one are the ones with kids, so they are just generic cards, no writing on there or anything. So tell me, am I rude because I did not do it?! Hardly anyone sends us cards so I just think it is stupid to send them out. Plus I have enough to think about right now! I told him to send them out if he wanted to!!

    We don't send out Christmas cards.  This is what happens... I buy Christmas cards... and then we run out of stamps.  So I don't send them, but I spend $$ buying them and like an hour signing them all.  OR... I buy them... I get stamps... I put stamps on them... then I think I send them out, and find them all on January 7th.

    So I stopped doing them.

    I told him that the only reason other people do it is because they have kids. I MIGHT do it next year with our wedding pic, but this is a big maybe.

    I don't think that's rude at all. I never used to send them but have been for 2 years now and people still sent them to me. I always thought it was an optional thing and just if you felt like doing it. I won't be upset if the people I sent them to don't send them back especially if they chose not to send them at all! I usually thank the people who send them and let them know I got them :)

    You're not rude.  I didn't do Christmas cards this year b/c I'm too tied up with writing my thank you notes.  I always send them but just no time this year.  I wouldn't worry about it.  You're planning a wedding.  Plus, whenever I send them out, it's not like I get one from everyone I send them too.  I do it b/c it makes me feel good to give them not b/c I expect one in return.

    Yea that is true, I mean I did send them in the past but I really was like who cares this year. I am busy! LOL 

    I really did want to send ones with our wedding pic on it next year though, and then maybe if I have a baby a year or two later it can be of that.   :)   

    I knew FI was just being crazy. Thanks ladies.

    I know, I mean I am just like lets just get through the holidays and bring on the wedding. I think he was more or less joking with me, if he says it again I will just ignore him. Xmas is like just days away at this point anyhow.
