Now that we have reached Twelfth Night, it's time for the Christmas festivities to end and for us to take the Christmas tree and decorations down. Being in Spain, we have an excuse to hang on to the holidays for one extra day as today it's 'Kings Day', a time in which the three kings come and bring presents to good children and coal to the bad.
Every year, I'm left with a stack of Christmas cards which I hate to get rid of. I always say that I'm going to do something with them. However I stuff them in a drawer and let them accumulate until I have no choice, but to throw them away.
Living in an age in which we are all encouraged to recycle, I also like the idea that my Christmas cards will go on to fulfill a completely different use. So, what do I do with them?
I appreciate that this is meant to be a book blog, but I'm sure some of you out there have some creativity. So any suggestions, both serious or silly are welcome!
