I was browsing around Mashable.com and discovered this article about Social Media (specifically Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Youtube) being the new means of sharing holiday cards with family and friends, rather than good ole snail mail.
Personally, I don’t believe that this will become common practice. Maybe my family is more old fashion than others, but one of the most “magical” parts of the holidays is sending out individual cards in the mail to family and friends. Sending out these physical, individual, personalized cards and messages allows my family to show our extended family, close friends, long-distance friends, etc. that we are thinking of them, and sincerely wishing them a happy holidays.
Will this switch from Snail Mail to Social Media take away from the sincerity of the cards message? Do you think we will see this happen this Holiday Season? When do you predict it will become common practice?
