Arrow St. Patrick's Day Cards? To send or not to send?

I have some penpals that aren't Irish and I was considering sending them cards. I thought that for each and every Holiday I would send a card. Any input?

Thanks!
Elisabeth

I found a St. Pat's day card at Wal-mart that said "On St. Patrick's Day, Everybody's Irish" It had a picture of a Dalmation on the front and instead of black spots he has green shamrocks. I'm sending it to my non-Irish pen pal Hey, I'm part Irish, so why not!

We can't find St Patrick's Day cards in France, so I don't have this problem, I won't send any.

They are hard to come by here too, but managed to find something that will 'fit'. So I sent one to my Irish pal, and one to my half Irish pal.

I usually send a card for just about every holiday. They have some funny St. Patrick's Day cards at WALGREENS, (Like Maxine and her little dog), etc. I picked one of those out and will send it to my closest pal. Most of the cards I send are funny so that he has a little something to lift his spirits, since he's kind of depressed these days. Found a few cards for my other pals too.

OK, because of all of the good advice I've received here I went out and bought some cards! I think I will make it a tradition!

Thank you all!

I send postcards for the "extra" holidays. I create them on my computer using the laser cut postcards you can find at most office supply places. If $$ is a problem, postage for postcards is only 23 cents. I can individualize them just as if they were letters.
