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

I wake up in the morning to hear the birds chirping. I smile and get up to go down stairs. I hear a DING go off on my computer, meaning I had a new message. It was from my friend Terry. I open it. It said "Hi! Happy Saturday!". I smile as I reply "Yaayyy! It's Saturday!". I close my computer and run downstairs. I eat my granola bar as I see I have a new comment on my photo on Clickstowl. "Hahaha, dog face and long nose" it said. I roll my eyes as I shut it down and sigh. I reply "hah at least we look better." I take a walk outside as I see the streets busiling as always. I see some snickering at me as I sit down on a bench. I look at Clickstowl and see that I had an edited photo. It was me, but my face was replaced with a dog face. I see the comments and she's a tear. I knew in a few days everyone would forget about it. I was sure. MONDAY, 2016: I walk along the halls as everyone laughs at me and mimicked a dog as they looked at me. (TO BE CONTINUED)
