How many Christmas cards do you send out?

  1. I was just wondering how many Christmas cards everyone sends out each year. Excluding our Allnurses card exchange this season, how many cards do you send out to friends and families? I figured I have sent out about 110 cards not including the Allnurses list. Didn't realize that I knew that many people....

    I sent everyone on the allnurses list a card, plus about 10 assorted friends and family at a distance(those I wont be seeing , otherwise I've just attached a lil card to their gifts) email cards to be sent this week to those on the email list on allnurses plus a few other friends... so all in all , probably 80 or so??!?
    wow thats a lot ... haha

    Usually, I send out about 50 to family and friends. But this year I procrastinated and when the ice storm hit it fried my hard drive and I lost all my addresses, so I haven't been able to send out any. I do remember some of the addresses, but I don't want to send to some and leave out others.

    I sent around 40 and hubby sent around that number. Had to cut back.

    I send out 200 a year. I am ambivalent about the whole thing, but I live 1200 miles from all my old friends and all my family. My parents died when I was a kid so I keep up their list as well. One year I didn't send any out and got frantic calls from a dozen or so people thinking I was dead. I only get about 20 so it isn't much of a return on my investment!

    I had not sent out cards since 1999 to make sure everyone KNEW I had dropped the baggage... er, I mean, divorced.

    This year I sent out 90 cards.
