Christmas cards
There are people that do not send cards simply because they cannot do it on time. It is our experience that if you write your cards on time, you can make things easier and actually convert this activity into a fun activity for the whole family.

Plan ahead and make your list. Shop for your cards. You can either send paper cards or electronic cards. Of course the paper cards have their special place and most people prefer them. You can shop them in the stores or online. Have a day to complete each activity.
