I haven't since I was a teenager. Apart from my immediate family.
apart from when my friends from school send me them, then I have to hurriedly return one. But that's only three people.
Tends to be to family, friends a few years or more older than me, and work colleagues, too.
Don't tend to keep track of postal addresses of mates now that fb seems to fullfil that role.
...usually get a couple of "can everyone send me their addresses please?" emails, which I have mixed feelings about.
I wonder how long ago it stopped being "the done thing"? My parents still send and receive loads, whereas I'm now completely surprised if I receive one (from someone my own age).
i'm 32 and feel like i'm somewhere within the transition.
i do wonder how places like Clintons and Hallmark survive. is Birthdays still a shop?
I don't think that there's been a decline in any other form of card though, it just seems to be xmas cards that are now seen as no more personal than a text message.
One for mum and dad
Everyone in work will get a mince pie instead of a card
