Is there anyone else out there who hates Christmas letters as much as I do?
I love getting Christmas cards, but Christmas letters make me want to drop friendships with those who send them. I hate the two page single spaced letters, I won, I traveled, My children, My granddkids, My husband, My business. I see the letters as bragging and insensitive to those unable to afford, unable to travel due to health and unmindful of those who do not have extended families. I once heard that Christmas letters were historical records. Ha, only if they contain both the good and bad events in an honest manner.
Thankfully I have never received one of those letters. I guess my family and friends aren't leading exciting enough lives.
With love and personal accolades from my heart. You follow one person here. I see a possible problem. I hate those damn letters too. But I love you.
Please be loving with these folks that send them. Perhaps they need your attention more than you know.
Perhaps they are from really lonely folks that live vicariously. And you could help them.
I do believe that by you posting this you will get some good stuff that will help.
but I still hate those letters even when they came from mom.
Insensitive? that kind of a strong word just for someone telling you about a trip. should i not tell people i drive to work because they may not be able to afford a car? or worse maybe they dont have a job. talk about walking on egg shells with every move we make
One trip or even two would not be a problem, but ten of them? I'll stand by bragging and insensitive
i guess it could be. i dont know this person you obviously know personally. if i did that much traveling i would probably talk about too though. i dont think i would see a reason not to.

Does anyone else think that Facebook puts too much of your info out thereEmployers can look at it and business clients, e.g. In Australia there have been several cases where celebrities have been in hot water over stuff they said on Facebook.

I had someone recently try to discourage me from going into nursing school...I know there's pros and cons to every job, including being an RN...but why do you think she would feel so strongly against it? Are you a nurse and possibly hate it?

Not about religion or anything deep, just a kind of play fight,,,,,, just to brighten up the day.

Does anyone else find themselves getting offended when asked about their religion?
