Christmas in July – Sort Of

shopping for holiday cards

You’ve heard of Christmas in July, right? No? Well, it’s sort of like having a big ‘ole holiday sale on stuff when it’s not really time. Sort of.

Anyway, I thought I’d take an inventory of Our holiday cards so I could do some shopping if We needed more. We’re running low!

Time to shop. A Scottie can never be too early with these things. (Even if it IS August and not July.) I’ll do some snooping for you and let you know what I find. So come back and see me. To see what cards I find.

Hey, do you send out holiday cards? Or e-greetings?

What You Learned Today:

  • The peeps and I send out Scottie holiday cards.
  • Do you? Well, maybe not Scottie cards, but any kind of card?
  • OR…do you do send out that email stuff?
  • OR…do you make a donation in somebody’s name instead of cards or gifts?
  • Thanks for all the fig suggestions, by the way. Y’all are great pals.

YOUR DAILY REMINDER!! Time to vote! I’m still in the running, but, uh, I need about 4,000 votes to catch up with the LEADER in the Thundershirt contest. Can we do it???? Vote here. And thank you soooooo much!

Vote for Lilly, too! In the Virginia Living Cutest Pet in Virginia contest. Today’s the last day. I think…

    Our mom sends out Xmas cards which she buys from a charity kiosk that is set up at our local shopping centre each year. She tries to buy cards from the SPCA & CANSA societies in particular. But we suspect that Xmas is far more low key here in SA than it is in comparison to the USA.

    • OH…good ideas about the SPCA and CANSA cards! And oh yeah….the good ‘ole USA is very commercial around holiday times. Too bad. So most us dog folks like to do good things to help animals instead of buying into the commercial stuff.

    Well we try to give something useful like a small calendar like you got last year. Lee also gives to a couple of causes that she feels does good work.
    Thanks for being a friend

    I send out Christmas cards and write a note in each one. I think that is more personal and caring. Have a wonderful day!
