I thought I would run this cartoon before it ceases to make sense.  I drew this a few years ago, when I was receiving a TON of holiday cards. Now, I don’t get as many; rather, I get holiday emails. TONS of holiday greetings in my inbox. That’s okay, I am not complaining. It saves paper. But I am actually missing the cards–never thought I would say that.  As a cartoonist, I get many cards from others in my field and it is wonderful.  Now they come via cyberspace.

Unlike cards, it is easy to ignore them, or hit the delete button. I am trying very hard not to do either. I like the tradition. As long as they don’t go on and on about the exploits of their kids, or how they traveled to wonderful exotic places that I will never see. That’s what blogs are for 🙂
