The sending out of Christmas cards: a puzzle that’s intense;
Consider all the many weeks in which they could be sent.
Do I opt to mail ’em promptly? Am I wiser just to wait?
Never miss a local story.
So, is Halloween too early? Is the Super Bowl too late?
And after all, as Christmas nears, the crush of mail smothers —
Will my cards seem insignificant in batches with some others?
If earlier, they’ll stand out more, and clearly seem unique
(At risk of awful penmanship inviting a critique.)
Perhaps I’m overthinking this; yes, clearly too much thought…
To worry so of Christmas cards I haven’t even bought!
