One of my cousins used to do that. A page and a half to two pages about what fantastic people they were, and how fabulous their lives all were. It was like reading a long Monk post. I never responded, and eventually, they stopped coming. I don't know if they stopped writing them, or just took me off the mailing list, and I'm sure I don't care.

Always seems a bit narcissistic, and if you have to send a letter to recap an entire year of what happened with your family to someone else, you're obviously not that close, so why are you sending a Christmas card in the first place?

Never heard of anyone doing that. I like the idea of it but wouldn't actually read one or write one.

I have an acquaintance who always sends them out at Christmas. Boring crap about his kids & grandkids, none of whom I've ever met. I joked with him about it years ago, saying no one cares about all of his crap. He was insulted, and said that lots of people like them. I asked how many he receives each year, he said none.

Definitely narcissistic. I see this cousin in person usually 2-4 times per year. I would think that anything really great going on in his life would come up at one of those gatherings, but I guess he felt a need to tell EVERYONE EVERYTHING at one time to make sure we all knew how great he was.

What is a little impressive is some people's ability to fill TWO PAGES OF TEXT with complete bullshit. If I wanted to fill you full of bullshit about how great my life is, I'd get to maybe a long paragraph, and be totally out of material.
