Keeping birthday/Christmas cards?

Do you keep all the birthday and Christmas cards that you receive or do you just throw them away or recycle them after the occasion has passed?

I keep them all. They all bring back memories. I don't really go through them all that often, but I do keep them stored away in a few different boxes just incase I ever feel the need to go through them. I'm glad I have kept them though, they are some of my most prized possessions from people in my life who have passed.

I'll keep a card for probably about a month after my birthday before I'll throw it away. I'd say that almost all of the cards that I've ever gotten have all had just a name inside them. No special messages besides cash, so I never saw any reason to keep them. I'll hold on to some weird stuff sometimes, but cards really never grabbed my interest.

Cards to me, are a waste of money sometimes...I did say sometimes.
I really don't like paying $3.00 for a child's birthday card when the child just rips it open to see if there's money in it anyway *ha*
I do however, send out quite a bit of cards, and I save the special ones that my children gave to me, my grandbabies make for me, and some my Mother gave to me.
I plan on making a large shadow box type of art, to display the prettiest ones.
I would like to share a wonderful card story....I always sent my Mother cards for her birthday, Mother's Day, Valentine's, Grandparents Day, you name it, I got Mother a card.
When I lost her, and we were going thru her things, I found all the cards I had been sending her...some were dated as far back as the 1980s.
She had kept practically every card I ever sent her, she is sentimental like me.
I even found gift wrapping from some of the gifts I had gotten her years before ~LoL~
Anyway, the stacks of cards must have reached 12 inches high or more.
I could never have felt more loved :)

Generally I keep the cards but I'm not a big fan of them.
After a while, chances are I'll throw them away.

I don't usually keep them.

I don't usually receive them if you want the truth.

I didn't get a single birthday card in the mail this year.

I've got a big box (insert vag joke here) full of old cards - Birthday's, Christmas, Valentine's etc. I like to go back and read them all when I'm having a clear out.

Jeanie that's really sad. Give me your address.

I've never gotten any cards for anything like that really, but I imagine I'd recycle them at some point if I did..
