Do you write Christmas cards? In Canada, it’s very common. My father has always written(1) Christmas cards to his friends. However, I only began to write(2) them a few years ago. They are a good way to stay in contact with friends you haven’t seen(3) for a long time. I try to send(4) cards to my friends in Germany, Japan, and Canada. Also, I like to get(5) mail from my friends. I enjoy checking(6) the mailbox and seeing that a Christmas card has arrived(7). However, if you decide to write(8) Christmas cards to international friends, you have to remember to do it(9) early! International mail can be slow, so send them soon to avoid being(10) late.
