You would just not believe how much Christmas-related stuff I have. Even though we lost some ornaments in Ike - some from water damage, and some because the boxes they were in got knocked over and things broke - I still had plenty of ornaments for our (very skinny) six-foot tall tree. And I'm not sure but what there are still some more ornaments in some box somewhere that we haven't found. And I have lots of other stuff besides ornaments - I filled a whole good-size box with just Christmas CDs, and there are various candles and decorations and I don't even know what all kinds of crap. I like Christmas, can you tell? (Even though I'm not at all religious and occasionally get all weirded out by the religious aspects, I still kind of love it. It's what I was brought up with.)

So at some point while I was digging through all these boxes last week, I found a box with a bunch of old leftover cards from various years. This is the oldest one:

The scan sort of makes it look like it's a hand-made kind of a card - it's not. It's, like, a photo of a hand-made card, or something. It's not a card that has aged all that well, in my opinion.

Then there's this one:

I have several like this left, because I've spent the last few years thinking I didn't really like it very much. On the other hand, it's not all that bad, I really overthink this sometimes!

One year I found this postcard, which I really liked:

The one below is one of my favorites in recent years, but the scan really doesn't do it justice at all:

I've been trying to get away from cards that say "Merry Christmas" - not being of a religious persuasion, as I said above - but somehow I end up buying some practically every year that say it just the same. Part of me would like just to send New Year cards and get away from "the holidays" bit completely, but those are hard to find unless you make them yourself. (Which I keep saying I'm going to do, but it never quite happens, so far. And I bought another 40 cards for next year, today, so it's probably not happening so much next year, either.)
