Mailing Holiday Cards

Dec 02, 2013

Sending holiday cards in the mail is a popular winter tradition. Want to know where to start? Kidzworld has some tips!

 

Step 1: Make a List

First, make a list of the family and friends you want to send cards to. Don’t exclude people from your list just because they live nearby. Everyone loves to receive mail!

Step 2: Buy/Make Cards

Stores like Indigo, Walmart and Barnes and Noble have a large selection of cards to choose from. If you want to be more thrifty, you can make your own. All you need is some colored paper, glue and your imagination.

Step 3: Collect Addresses

Send emails, Facebook messages and texts letting your friends know that you need their address. But, be sure not to tell them why! You want it to be a surprise when the card appears in the mail.

Step 4: Buy Stamps

You can purchase stamps at your local post office. Most envelopes will only need one local stamp, unless it is travelling a far distance. If you are unsure, you can ask the person at the post office.

Step 5: Write your Message

Be sure to write a personal message inside each card. If you haven’t talked to the person in a while, you might even want to write them a letter and tuck it inside the card!

Step 6: Mail the Cards

Once you have written, addressed and stamped the cards, you can drop them into your local mailbox. Most cards are delivered locally within a few days. Remember, it might taking longer for your cards to arrive during busy times like Christmas.

Have Your Say

Have you mailed holiday cards before? Any tips? Let us know!

My sister turns 18 in as of now 20 minutes, so she's going to be locked out. I'm kind of sad, but here's to you @Katara 9296   You will be missed. Granted, she hasn't logged in in a while, but it still kind of makes me sad.

(:P So for Hearth, I'm replacing him with Solomon Wreath from Skulduggery Pleasant . And Blitz is being replaced by Kotake from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time ... except a slightly altered version of her, more of a reincarnation, since Link and Zelda are always reincarnated versions of the two same people. XD You can do the same sort of thing with your guys if you want to change the person in some sort of little way. I'll start writing as soon as you pick your dudes out.)

(Since it's not an RP, it's kinda pointless to make forms. We can just divvy up characters to choose, and say, for example: "Magnus is Percy Jackson from Percy Jackson and the Olympians. " If the other person doesn't know the character, they can research them a bit so they're more confident writing with them. So to make this completely random, I used a random number picker to assign characters to each of us. The randomness came up with you choosing the replacements for Magnus and Sam, and for me to do Hearth and Blitz.)

If we were doing  The Sword of Summer , here's the people we would likely replace with some of those swapped dudes: Magnus Blitz Hearthstone Samirah Yeah? And since this would be considered a roleplay if we just took small turns, we'll write it in larger chunks and just leave off where the other continues, and choose where each of us keeps going. I could start it out after we determine the characters, if that was confusing.) (Yeah. ok! YAY you even listed the charactersssss!!! And that's exactly what i was thinking XD It was confusing. Should be make forms?......and you can start if you want XD)
