Like you don't already have enough to do at this time of year, we're also expecting to send cards to three types of people: business associates who we want to keep sweet; family members and friends who we feel guilty about not contacting during the rest of the year; and family members and friends we see regularly.
None of it makes sense. If you don't like someone enough to speak to them the rest of the year, just cut them out of your life - don't send them a card! If you like them enough to see them regularly, you're probably going to see them over Christmas at some point. Or just send them a text or something. Don't waste money on a stamp, for pity's sake.
Still, if we were to unexpectedly get our senses together enough to send cards this year, these baffling Victorian cards are the sort we'd like to send.
