Saved by the Internet

Before Christmas comes around us Dutchies usually send each other cards wishing people a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Having lived abroad for years now, I don’t really adhere to that tradition anymore. But after I thanked my mother for the card she sent us this year, it became apparent she was expecting a card from us. 
Oops. And it was already too late to send a card from the States, it would never make it to the Netherlands in time for Christmas. 
But we live in the Age of the Internet and anything is possible there. So I gave some of this year’s summer pictures a Christmas look with Picnik and turned it into a card on the Dutch Hallmark website. 
And they post the real card with a Dutch stamp somewhere within the Netherlands and that’s how our impromptu card arrived today, very much on time for Christmas this year! Thank you, Mr. Internet.
