This year, I’ve put the Christmas Card Countdown ticker in the sidebar instead of in the body of the blog. For newer readers, this is the counter of how many Christmas cards we’ve received versus how many we’re sending out. This year, I ordered 250 cards (50 more than last year). Some have been hand-delivered on Wednesday, and 90% of the ones we mail out were sent yesterday. I’m counting on hand-delivering a lot of the local ones on Sunday at our big Christmas church service, as usual. Keep your eye on the sidebar to see how it goes.
If there were a prize for the first Christmas card of the year received, this year it would go to Tom & Denise Snyder, whose card arrived on November 30th!
