Well, I think & family is perfect but I don't want to offend anyone that may be living the swingin' single life. I know my kids like looking at all the cards and & family would suit them just fine.

Hey, I open almost every piece of mail that hits my box.... I am lucky to look at WHO it's addressed to..... and if it's not trash --(most things are).... then I put it in "whomever's" stack it belongs. My kids and hubby have no issues with this.

I LOOK about 50% of the time, but both kids have advised me that I am allowed to open and throw out all junk mail.

The other day, I handed hubby an envelope addressed to him -- he hardly ever gets any mail (poor thing) and he said..."what is this" and I said.....likely junk mail, but I wanted you to have something to open. So he opens it and it's a prize we are NOT claiming for a free subscription to a MENS magazine. We both got a good laugh actually about that one....and I think it's the first prize we knew about that we are not claiming ---- but reminded me to open and look before just trashing.

I don't understand anyone upset about addressing on a fun Christmas Card exchange, but....then IF IF IF someone has an issue and MUST have their name a certain way (you know who you are).... then please PM me, and I will note after you info...."must be addressed like this"..... But then everyone is getting the list and we will all know who you are!!!

Over the years, I have had some really funny names put on Christmas cards (and other mail too) sent to me from people here.
As long as the apartment number and address is correct, my postman puts them in the box.

When I was still working, our boss used to send out cards to all the employees.
One year (late as usual. ) I got a card addressed like this........

My Name
xxxxx Blvd.

I am pretty sure he had the zip on there, but even the city was wrong. And no street name at all, but I got that card!!

I have an AMAZING postal carrier and I remember him at this time of the year always.

Would it be alright to include my brother in the card exchange? He won't (probably) send back but I know he would be thrilled to get the mail in Iraq.

I told Kat I would do this and she said fine with her.

As for her brother, or for anyone who is already partaking in the card exchange only if you have someone close to you who is serving in an active capacity such as Iraq, you can post here that you would like a card to be sent to that person.

A card should be all that is requested and I will reiterate, you must be a part of the card exchange to request a card be sent.

Jolene responded that she wanted to send a card, which is fine, even thought she isn't part of the exchange, but she can't ask for cards to be sent.

I hate to sound harsh, but we do have to draw the line somewhere and take into consideration those who may not be able to afford to join in on this.

If you see a request such as Kat's and want to send a card, you should PM Kat and let her know so that she can send you the address.

For those who are sending out cards overseas, Kat said a card sent to an APO address doesn't require any extra postage and it should make it there by Christmas IF you get it sent out early enough.

Any questions? Send me a PM.

I know that kiddo, I just wanted or I should say we needed to put some guidelines for this or it could get very confusing.
