can i send them out first few days of dec.?

i always enjoy the first ones and want to offer the same to others?

does it look silly to send them out before dec. 5? dec. 10?

i don't want to raise an eyebrow with my coworkers... my friends and my family will be happy to get them early but for everyone else- what's the etiquette?

thanks!

I'm not sure what the proper etiquette is for this, but I think anytime after Thanksgiving is fine, alot of people already have their tree and decorations up

by now. I will probably get mine ready to send out next weekend.

Well, I don't know what the "proper" etiquette is, but mine are going in the mail in the next couple of days. I pretty much send them out early for two reasons: 1) The mail slows down a lot this time of year, and I want everyone to get them on time, and 2) Purely selfish; the closer we get to Christmas, the busier I get, so I like to have the cards out of the way.

I think it's appropriate to mail them anytime after Thanksgiving. Personally, I wait until the 2nd week of December...which is just after my birthday.
