I never seem to know when is a good time to get my Christmas cards out. Is there a specific date you aim for?

I've always wanted to get into the habit of sending out holiday cards, but I always get too busy to follow through.
My goal is always just after Thanksgiving...reality often makes it very close to Christmas! (Or even New Years, some years!)
I try to have them in my hand Thanksgiving weekend and I work on addressing them throughout the week. If mine aren't out during the first week of December they probably won't get out at all.
It varies year to year, but I find doing Happy New Year cards takes a lot of pressure off and I can write something more personal. Also, having a shelf of cards I've received serves as a motivator and makes it easy to find everyone's address.
We are always so late, trying to get the perfect photo, etc! I try to get them there by Christmas Eve.
Yes!! That is my goal, too! In an ideal world I would have them out the week after Thanksgiving, but in this real world getting them out for a Christmas Eve arrival is a big win!
