    Do what I do, I make stuff up. Mostly travel. Pen pals send me foreign postcards, I write the message, mail them back to wherever they came from, they mail them to addresses I put on them.

    Of course, the ones from Ishpeming I mail myself.

    I don’t see the use of family/holiday letters. If the person who sent it couldn’t be bothered to write to you during the rest of year why bother at the end?

    I feel much the same way about folks who haven’t been around for years and then go to funerals. Come see me now, when I can shake your hand, not when I’m dead.

    I was thinking the same thing myself earlier this week. Maybe I’ll write some outlandish fiction. Even though family sees everything I want them to know online or we talk on Skype, there is still something nice about a handwritten letter.

    My eldest sister sends one out every year. I have no idea who the people she talks about are.

    There must be people out there who appreciate receiving family xmas letters, but I never met one. Most people consider it narcissistic aggrandizement, which is what facebook is for.

    I very much enjoy hearing what my friends have been doing, even though we are FB friends. Nuances can be lost, especially when people value privacy enough that they don’t post every single thing they do.
