Give the Gift of Green Insead of Paper Christmas Cards

I am very bad about sending Christmas cards.

It gives my mom fits.

It has nothing to do with saving trees or being green. It has everything to do with sending Christmas cards being the last priority on my holiday To Do list that I never finish in time for Christmas.

The last time I made a serious effort to send cards almost all of them came back from relatives on Husband’s side of the family. They moved and failed to give Husband and I their addresses. GRR!

This year I’m trying something a little different in the holiday card department. I’m using the One Million Acts of Green Facebook application to Give the Gift of Green instead of sending paper Christmas cards to new house addresses I’m supposed know without being told.

The Gifts of Green are cute, a little funny, and a nice reminder of some the green things people ask me about when we visit.

I'm giving this one to Husband because I have shut the lights off on him before - Oopsie!

I haven't done with with socks. Shoes however...

By giving the Gift of Green via Facebook instead of paper Christmas cards, I know I’ll get them out on time,  save a tree, and I don’t have to worry about the cards coming back

Unless they unfriend me on Facebook.

Do you send paper holiday cards?
