Promenade rue de Montreuil I

This week I'm taking you to Montreuil neighbourhood's lively main street, rue de Montreuil. Have you started writing your Christmas cards yet? I still send lots of them, I hate e-cards!
Cette semaine je vous emmène en promenade rue de Montreuil, la rue principale du quartier Montreuil. Vous avez déjà pensé aux cartes de vœux ? Perso, j'en envoie des tonnes, je déteste les e-cartes...

I prefer receiving the real cards this time of year myself. Love the looks of these cards.

Merci für diese wichtige Erinnerung. Werde mich bemühen. Einen guten Dienstag dir.

Thankfully, my much better half handles such things. My handwriting is atrocious (severely understated).

That's a nice collection of cards!

Lovely holiday card display.

Randy said...

Wonderful photo! I can't remember when I last received a real Christmas card. I must agree I hate e-cards too.

Bob Crowe said...

Well, good for you. You have more self-discipline and sense of tradition than we do. If either of us has the energy and the time, we'll write a holiday letter with photographs and send it around by e-mail.

How can you have a good old fashioned 'string' of Chrissy cards to hang up without them Ciel. I've never sent an e-card in my life (probably because I don't know how to haha!)

Because we were on a recent trip, this year I got myself organized very early. I wrote up a Christmas letter, included numerous photos of the family, and included the letter in cards that we hand-signed. (The addresses, however, are on labels.) I think I earn the award for most Type A card-sender.

Dina said...

There are so pretty all together.

VP said...

I have never written a Christmas card in my life and I am not going to begin now! But I usually like to see them around...

We are trying to come up with ideas for cards this year... I agree, they are better than e-cards, which seem kinda impersonal.

Halcyon said...

I think e-cards are better than nothing, but I do agree a real postal card is better!
I must admit I haven't started mine yet. But sometimes I do it the French way and send them for the New Years. :)

tu veux bien faire les miennes ???

There is a certain "joy" that surrounds such cards...

Thankfully Lois has taken on the task of sending holiday cards to friends and family. If it were up to me, the Xmas card companies would go out of business quickly.

And yet, it is still fun to receive them and hear about what people are doing.

Of course, at my age, the best thing is hearing that some friends are still alive! ;-)

There is such a choice of gorgeous Christmas cards to be found that I quite often end up buying more than one for the same person! Spoiled for choice!!!

Kaori said...

I love receiving letters! I bet your friends do, too! :D

Malyss said...

I send lots of cards, all the year long!I'm a happy snailmailer!
I like to receive them, and to write them! that's a pleasure to look for the right one for each beloved person. But this year, I was shocked by some prices...

EG Wow said...

Sent my cards? Nope, but I am thinking about it. :))

Gunn said...

I have bought some, and just like you, I prefer to get some snail mail, just in time for Christmas.
But e-cards are better than sms messages:)
Looks like you have many nice cards in this shop.

Andrew said...

Haha! Thanks for the reminder.
I aways leave everything until the last minute..

Versailles a absorbé Montreuil ! Que sera Paris devenu ?

Loree said...

I love to send out cards the ones in too. The ones in your picture are very pretty and colourful.

For many decades I sent an annual newsletter to my many friends around the globe. Some years with a card, others without, but they were quite elaborate affairs. Now with social media and blogging, friends can stay in touch with what we're up year round, if they so choose. Sorry you dislike e-cards (and I understand it), but that is all my friends and family will get from me this year. We intend to skip Christmas entirely, with the only gifts to be given to charity. :-)

I love actual cards, too. I love propping them up in the living room or on the tree - tiny reminders of friends and family who love you
