I like the way you let the reader 'hear' Dana's thoughts all through this narrative.

When I was a newlywed, I thought I needed to send Christmas cards to everyone who had given us a wedding gift. Most of them were friends and family of my husband. I remember wondering the same things Dana did.

Good job. Thanks for sharing.

Good job--really cute title--and there's a larger application to all writers, not just of Christmas cards--why do we bother? But then something happens to confirm what we're doing has value...

I enjoyed reading this (though it put me to shame because this past year I sent no Christmas cards at all!). Very realistic portrayals of family tensions--I could feel with the narrator in the turmoil of her thoughts. Clever title, too!

A fun read, boy could I relate!
