    I picked up some simple winter cards with a winter scene and on the inside says May Your Home be filled with much happiness this holiday season.

    I paid $15.99 for 40 at Target

    I always just get really simple cards that say "happy holidays" or "thinking of you this season" and have a winter scene on the front.

    I think the generic happy holidays would be best, especially if you're doing all the work yourself!
    They generally start rolling in about the second week of December here, honestly if we get any before Thanksgiving I think it's a little odd.

    Or you could always ask. That's what I did with DB's dad who is Jewish. I was like "We don't want to offend anyone..so what would be the best course of action?" And he was like "Happy Holidays" is fine.

    2nd question...when is the right time to send such cards? The first week in december or later or before....? I just need opinions on when you think is right and I'll go for the majority.

    Thanks ladies!!!
    My family is Jewish, DB's is Catholic. The one time we attempted holiday cards, we found a neutral snow/night theme and just signed it "Happy Holidays. Love, Del & DB".

    It worked well!

    But if you wanted to do different cards for each side, that seems reasonable too. It just seems like more work, and we were (I was) lazy.

    There's no problem with you sending a Happy Hanukkah card to his family, no matter what your denomination is. I get Happy Hanukkah cards from family as well as non-Jewish friends. I also get Merry Christmas cards from Christian friends. None of it bothers me. I can't see someone getting all that bent out of shape over a Holiday Card, IMO.

    I agree to use non-religious cards. I usually send mine out the weekend after Thanksgiving.
