Q: I’ve been receiving lots of holiday e-cards, and find I feel somewhat slighted by the quick-click gesture. Is it rude to send Yuletide greetings over the Web?
A: Concentrate on the kind sentiments, and don’t take offense: E-cards are a reality of today’s world. They’re the only way many people have the time (or money) to send holiday wishes. Plus, they’re eco-friendly: They don’t waste paper and don’t have to be shipped. But not to worry- many people still love sending traditional holiday cards, so that custom is unlikely to fall by the wayside anytime soon. Bottom line: Both ways of sending cards are acceptable.
