An Alternative Approach to Displaying Christmas Cards

Christmas and holiday cards are often quickly glanced at and either tossed in a pile to never be looked at again, or hung on a wall where they are difficult to read. Here is an alternative approach that will increase communication in your marriage.

An alternative to displaying the Christmas cards you receive is to just put them in a pretty basket.

Then each day after Christmas, at dinner, read aloud one of the cards, share stories and memories of the senders, and say a prayer for them.

Continue reading one card each evening until all the cards have been read. It's a nice way to prolong the spirit of Christmas for awhile.

It also helps the two of you get to know the stories and memories of one another's families and friends.
