Mother of Mercy, Could This Be the End of Hallmark?

Holiday cards taking a backseat in era of Facebook | "Facebook may be killing the Christmas card, or at least its accompanying year-in-review letter.

Christmas card numbers have waned for years. Market researcher Mintel International said sales started slowing in 2005 and by 2009 had industry had posted a $17 million loss."

I'm just about to send my end-of-year letter be e-mail, but no cards this year. I don't think I'll be sending many cards ever again. Too bad, because they're much nicer to put on your mantelpiece than e-mail or a list of FB statuses.
