    2)put it on my refrigerator
    3)add it to my pile of other cards I received earlier years
    4)I don’t receive any cards. I get it call as text messages and on social media etc….
    5)other (if other then what do you do with it?)

    Guess in today’s day of a technological world people don’t get cards anymore. Its all a 5 second text or email etc….

    I occasionally get cards. Depending on who it’s from, I may throw it out or put in my “keepers” box. Mostly I get greetings on Facebook, and then I just reply, “Thanks!” I don’t Twitter, Instagram, or whatever else is out there now. Us old fogy types pretty much stick with FB, and then mostly only friend people we’ve known in person and want to keep up with.

    5) Specifically, read it and only then add it it to the pile (I usually get 1 card a year).

    Some of the card I have saved in a pile are from over 10 years ago, they really bring back happy memories and friends or family who value you nd it really doesn’t take up a lot of space. If I ever go back to them it’s like taking out an old photo album of a few special events or a big family Simcha.

    Joseph, who is talking about celebrating? Sending someone best wishes isnt a celebration!
    BTW, whose is there a sefer of halachos for erliche yidden that you are quoting?

    I recycle them by using white out. Works every time and no one questions me about it. After all ,what is white out for if not for whiting out?

    in todays world with so many chalanges and נסיונות in our face, we should take advantage of every oportunity to add in yiddishkeit and make yidishkeit more exciting. for example: celebrating birthdays in a toiredige way, using the day to increase in learning toirreh and strengthen our commitment to keeping mitsvos and taking on good resolutions.

    how about sending your friend or family member a birthday card for the mitzva of making someone happy & to let them know that your thinking of them, thus raising their self-esteem & self-image letting them know they mean alot to you
