Who wouldn't love singing llamas? This is one of the many holiday e-cards you could send to family and friends online. But would you? What about something like a Snapfish holiday card? You upload your picture, and voila -- you have the cute and the creepy.
It's a new trend, taking the place, for some, of going out, and searching through stacks of Christmas cards. But, does it ruin the tradition of taking the time to write something witty and sign something sweet?
Etiquette expert Patricia Napier-Fitzpatrick says it can.
"There's nothing like receiving a handwritten note on a Christmas card in the mail," she says.
David Santa -- no relation to the Santa -- agrees. He's manager of Papyrus on the Upper East Side.
"the whole point of all this is to make people feel good, he says. "That's what gifting is about, that's what these cards are about."
But, come on, singing llamas!?
Well, while I like the idea of getting a little kooky, if not bizarre. With Christmas cards this year I decided to take the more traditional route. If only I could figure out something witty, or sweet, to write.
I still love the singing llamas.
