Christmas in July

I know a lot of people don't even start thinking about Christmas until the fall but not me.  I always order my Christmas cards from the Current catalog in July.  Then usually in August I make my labels for the envelopes, except last year I used old labels I had on the computer.  In September or October, I figure out if I have enough to say in a newsletter for some people and if I do, I get on it and type it out.  I try to have my cards completed by Thanksgiving because I like to get them in the mail the beginning of December.

When I order my cards, I also order two calendars for the coming year.  One that I hang and one pocket calendar.  It's hard to believe but by the time I get them, I already have  appointments for the new year to put on them.  

So far, I'm right on track.  It's time to get started on the labels. 

I know some people buy their cards at the end of the previous season and get them pretty cheap that way.  

I also know less and less people are sending out holiday cards.  If you send cards when do you buy them?

After Christmas is when I buy them
Still haven't cut back on sending, but soon must give it thought.
