Okay, well I'm going to put my hand up and say I love Christmas cards. I love all the bells and whistles of Christmas and to me the cards help make it special and not just a day when kids get lots of toys.
When I was a kid I used to love all the Christmas card giving. We used to collect all the cards we got as a family and tie them on to our trellis and I just loved it. To me that was a big part of Christmas and they formed the centrepiece of our Christmas decorations.
At school we mostly gave out just cards. Presents were only for our 2 or 3 closest friends.

My kids hand out a few Christmas cards to their friends with a candy cane they enjoy doing it so I'm not going to stop them :-)
( they probably do between 6-8 each)
the only people in my family I give cards to are my nephews and niece as I give them cash :-)

When I was a kid, we wouls get a multi pack of mini candy canes &pop one in each card. I love xmas cards, but I also love cutting out the images & using them for craft for the kids we also save envelopes to put with our pencils, & then the kids & I write pretend letters & put them in envelopes & play postman. Its a great literacy activity
ETA - I am a teacher &if I saw kids throwing envelopes etc around,I think its a great opportunity for a 'teaching moment'.Perhps if this is a problem for PP,you could talk to the kids about xmas envelopes & the wastefulness, & either ask for suggestions as to how we could recycle them, or put out a box & ask kids to put them in so we can write letters for a literacy activity (depending on the age). I've made a post box for the classroom previously & the kids wrote letters to wach other for weeks.
