    I am not sure either, but I wouldn't want to hear from him again. This is the problem - letter or email correspondence is easier than "face to face" communication, although the problem is that one can never get to know the other person properly enough.

    In terms of blood relatives I have a very small family. The only Christmas card I receive is from the son of one of my cousins whom I've never met. 😛

    I have always felt that the more Christmas cards I receive, the more I feel that I am in the Christmas mood and want to celebrate it.

    The postman came today and I am pleased to say that I had four lovely Christmas cards in the post from two relatives, a friend, and even somewhere where I went when in holiday - I just hope that all the other Christmas cards I receive will be from those who are passionate about Christmas and other people (such as myself), and that what happened last week is in the past.

    I'm the opposite, my late father had 15 siblings, so i have tons of cousins and second cousins, there's loads I've never met and probably never will.

    My own late father (who had been married twice) had seven kids, and so I have six siblings - incidentally, one of them was one of the people who sent me a Christmas card in the post yesterday.

    I think that because I live on my own, I am obviously not going to receive as many cards as a family address would, which is why it is special when someone sends me one in the post.
