5)other (if other then what do you do with it?)July 10, 2018 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #1555642
1)read it (& show it to my family) and then throw it out Just as I would expect others to do with the ones that I send.July 10, 2018 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #1555619
Guess in today’s day of a technological world people don’t get cards anymore. Its all a 5 second text or email etc….July 10, 2018 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #1555701
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.July 10, 2018 5:48 pm at 5:48 pm #1555707
Read it, hang on fridge for 2-3 days, share with family members, tell sender thank you & throw out..July 10, 2018 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #1555736

5) Specifically, read it and only then add it it to the pile (I usually get 1 card a year).July 13, 2018 9:41 am at 9:41 am #1557531
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.July 13, 2018 9:44 am at 9:44 am #1557533
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?July 13, 2018 10:41 am at 10:41 am #1557552
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?July 13, 2018 10:41 am at 10:41 am #1557554

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.July 16, 2018 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #1559239
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 youJuly 16, 2018 11:24 pm at 11:24 pm #1559373
