Which greeting cards (if any) did you keep over the years?

Asked by ucme (48475points) 2 weeks ago

I’ve kept most of my Birthday/Christmas & Father’s Day cards off the wife/kids.
Keep them in a “treasured memories” box in our bedroom.
How about you lot few.

I have one from my husband that is chock full of beautiful compliments.
I recite his words in a loud,authoritative voice during any disagreements.

I have “Greetings from…..” holiday cards from family members, birthday well wishes cards from whatever age, Xmas cards, drawings and little gifts from children, letters, etc.
I simply can’t throw it, would feel like throwing the giver.

Most of the postcards and other cards from people (family and some friends) who wrote something interesting or nice on them.

@lucillelucillelucille Yep, that’s what wives do, the ability to shut down any debate & win every single time.

The best thing about keeping cards from my kids is seeing how their writing improved over the years, so cute reading the ones they did when so, so, little.

I have a lot of birthday cards, especially “son” cards my parents sent when I was in college; they wrote some sweet messages in them. :)

@ucme-It’s a skill but there’s no money in it.

None. About the only memorabilia like that that I still retain are some love letters from high school and college girlfriends – from 40 years ago.

I kept that sort of stuff for years, but as I was moving across the country last time,, I decided that they would visit the dumpster.

Blank ones. I keep thinking someday I will have somebody I can send one to.

I have at least one from my father (died when I was 13), one from my Grandma (died when I was 15), many from my mother and sisters and a couple from my husband. Also some cards given to my grandmother from my grandfather. He was so sweet.

@Pinguidchance That was very civil of you but you yelled my name here…It’s all lower case & it bugged me :D

I appreciate them all, but I truly do keep the most treasured ones that people took the to write something inside, rather than only signing their name.
