5 years ago we moved into our new house in January, so instead of Christmas cards that year we sent out New Years cards with a picture of our house with our new address and phone number.

I love the idea of doing New Year's cards, and I still might do it this year. Haven't send Christmas cards in a few years...lots going on. Years ago, when we used to go to Orlando from Thanksgiving till a week and a half later, I decided to get holiday cards out of the way and sent Thanksgiving cards. I might do that again NEXT year.

we don't celebrate Christmas (Jewish) and our friends and family are a mixed bag of Jews, Christians, Hindus, athiests/agnostics...so we send out New Year's cards. A lot of our Jewish family and friends do the same.

I would consider sending New Year's cards if a lot of my friends did not celebrate Christmas.

I usually get two "non Christmas" cards per year. One is from a Jewish friend. She either sends me a Hanukkah card or a New Year card (depends on the year). Another friend sends Thanksgiving Cards (with photos of the kids and a family letter) every year. I think her reason is the same -- a lot of her friends don't celebrate Christmas.

I'm happy with whatever kind of card I get... although mine are usually Christmas card, with a note to my Jewish friend that I hope she had a nice Hanukkah.

I actually send out New Years cards instead of Christmas or Hanukkah cards because it's much easier :P. My husband's side is Jewish and mine is Lutheran so I decided after our first year of being married that we would just do New Years cards to save time and money. I make them from Shutterfly's holiday cards templates with a family picture (from WDW if we went that year ) and a little letter like you mentioned.

It's almost the New Year, is anyone thinking about sending them this year?
