    Yes, classy. I like them very much.

    I have been a bit surprised reading this thread by the number of people who send no or very few cards. That seems at odds with our experience and the social circle we’re in - most houses we visit at Christmas have scores and scores of cards on mantlepieces etc. This set me in search of the figures.

    On average every person in the UK sends 16 Christmas cards. That is 36 cards per household. We spent £225 million on the one billion Christmas cards we send, so that makes them 23p each. 75% of over 65s send Christmas cards, 49% of 26-34 year olds and 43% of 16-24 year olds.

    @Fire I think your cards are lovely too.

    I send about 70 cards and OH sends about 12 to friends he knew before I met him that I haven't met. I buy them in England, here in France they are 2 - 3€ each.
