Do you say thank you?

Do you still send out thank-you notes?


For some reason I'm really dragging on thank-you notes this year. I've got a heap of Christmas presents, opened, sitting under the Christmas tree downstairs because I can't use them until I've written a gracious thank-you note and mailed it. I've done about half of them.

The way my mom raised me, it's not an option. Like bringing a hostess gift to a dinner party, it's an etiquette gesture that cannot be denied. But Sean doesn't write thank-you notes, and it seems like his family doesn't bother with them at all. Come to think of it, I think it's been a couple of years since I've actually received one. It makes me wonder - does anyone else bother with these anymore?
