https://www.independent.co.uk/life-...ane-primary-school-lincolnshire-a9231971.html Some of the parents in this article are 'outraged' by the thought that their children are being discouraged from sending dozens of cards to their classmates. I bet some are relieved though. My own offspring hated writing Christmas cards but felt they had to write them because everyone else was sending them and they didn't want to offend others by not sending any out. Many adults have given up sending cards due to the expense. Apart from all the paper used for Christmas cards, there's the plastic glitter that inevitably ends up all over the floor and half the playground too. I wonder if this relatively modern tradition will slowly die out.
