Holiday Card Socials

Three Thursdays and One Friday in December
Thursdays: December 1, 8, & 15
Friday December 23
2 to 5 Eastern, from wherever you are, via Zoom

Two years ago at this time we took a chance at bringing folks together virtually for a new version of a many-years-old tradition here at the Jaffe of gathering on each First Friday to write letters. This online version has since turned into a weekly event, and we've made wonderful new friends from all over the States and Canada and even an occasional visit from Real Mail friends in other parts of the world. It's been truly amazing.

And here we are again at that time of year when we're dreaming of snow and remembering friends and family, near and far with cards and letters. Why not handle this task in the company of friends? Gather with us four times in December –– three Thursdays and one Fridays –– to write your Christmas cards and Yuletide cards, Chanukah cards and Kwanzaa cards and New Year cards, too.

You provide the cards and the stamps (and the hot cocoa and eggnog); we'll provide the festive soundtrack. The music we've chosen for the season is anything but typical; we can guarantee you won't hear "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and in fact, most of this music is music you've probably not heard much of before. We provide the Zoom platform, too. And though it's billed as a card writing social, join us to do whatever it is you need to do: our Real Mail Fridays enthusiasts spend their Fridays with us journaling, baking, working at their desks, and even shoveling freshly fallen snow (it's true!). Whatever it is you're doing, you can do it in the company of friends from around the globe. Real Mail Fridays: three hours of quiet working time, set to a very Jaffe soundtrack, with a short break once or twice an hour to chat. Supremely heartwarming.
