Never in my life have I sent one. My mother probably will send them for the family. I think it is dying out. I think it is going the way of people saying happy Christmas on Facebook now, and in years to come I don't think that we'll be sending Christmas cards. It's a bit of a generational thing. If you are having a party now, you're not going to send out an invite in the post.

I think it is too easy to do it online now. Why would anyone write out a card and post it? My mam loves Christmas and now even she has gone towards online.

My mom sends all the cards so I don't have to. I'd usually use social media, send a text or use Facebook or something like that. It is not something our generation do.

My parents send them but I would just send a message or an email or something like that on Christmas Day. But I'd love to get a card.

I think if someone is living in Australia or abroad then it would be more personal to send them a card but besides that no. Just send a text. It's quicker.

I think that there is not much handwritten stuff anymore and in the next few decades people are not even going to think about it.

I use Skype. It would be nicer to send a card but you have to go to the post office and we don't have the time to buy and send them.

It's a nice tradition, but I just don't think about sending a card. I might give the lads a brief text alright but that would be it.

It is traditional for us to send cards but now with email and such things we do not write cards anymore. Whatsapp is good too.

I like sending Christmas cards but they have to be Irish made. My mom used to only buy cards that were made in Ireland. We send them as a family so I don't really send them myself.

I think it is nice to send them because it shows that you have made the effort and taken time to write a card. It's a nice tradition.
