    I'm not into stuff sent by computer because I like to put it all in a card holder I have in my entry hall.

    My top picks:
    Christmas cards, either store bought or homemade, but with handwritten greetings inside. I do not care for the "one size fits all" computer generated newsletters as they are not very personal. But, I would rather get those than nothing.

    Personal visits, including overnight. What's better than having over friends and family to eat, open gifts, work jigsaw puzzles and play board games?

    I marked several including "other" for "Personal visit". I like visits but not necessarily overnight. I do invite and welcome overnight visitors and did so recently, but their visits can sometimes become too much when a two day visit turns into a week as it did with one man.

    I enjoy hand-made cards with photos, only typed letters, never over-night visits and avoid the telephone. I certainly don't want money. I used to send loads of cards and letters, but have cut that out....lazy or just plain stubborn. (really, it is connected to my eye problem.)

    I would welcome a gift of English Pork Pie!

    Cheers, and Happy Christmas,

    Jim

    How about nothing. One size fits all and you'll never run out.

    You don't know how delicious they are.

    The problem is getting them into Canada. Canada banned British pork a few years ago when British pigs had a disease. The ban has never been lifted..............

    Cheers,

    Jim
