NaBloPoMo: Day 5
Now that Halloween is over, Christmas seems to be creeping up really fast. I have been approached by one of my online friends about exchanging Christmas cards. I have never done anything like this before, so I have no idea where to start. Of course I will send a nice card, but what else can I include in the envelope?! I am sending my card to Taiwan, so am I supposed to send Taiwanese things or Canadian things? I assume the latter as she would have access to Taiwanese things already. As I don’t want to send a huge package, I’d rather not include anything that could get out of hand. Any ideas for what I can send to my penpal??!
Speaking of penpals, I think there is a website called Post Crossing and it is all about sending post cards/letters to people using snail mail. I might try and find the website and take a look to see if they have any ideas on what to send as well. I’d love to have more penpals. It is so cool that, still, with all the technology we have these days, people still want to communicate the “old fashioned” way!
I have also started to think of what I want to buy for my family for Christmas. I have more than half of their Christmas lists, which is a good start. Peter and I buy for 10 family members and an assortment of friends. It’s hard to know what to buy people. Myself, I like receiving gift cards so I can pick out what I want. So I don’t think that’s a bad way to go. However, Peter thinks it is impersonal. Ah well, I still have time if I want to order things online and have them shipped here. I will also look for some cool trinkets in Florida next week. Not too many things though, as we will have to bring whatever we buy back in our suitcases.
