New Year's greeting cards

Yep - so it seems. I was astonished to have quite a selection to 'open' when we got back from the UK last week. A dignified French protest at the cost of cards and the increase in the postal charges perhaps or just something innovative to try!

I think it is a super idea - some of the ones we have received have been extraordinary.

I agree, with you, Cooperlola!!  I love cards around the house & think it takes a little more thought in buying, writing & posting a nice card.  We were very surprized to see how few Christmas cards were available, when we went looking in December.  Anyone know why the French don't seem to send Xmas cards but prefer New Year ones?  [8-)]
