Another year, another set of holiday cards. Actually, judging from our mail, lots of people are scaling back on traditional, USPS holiday greetings. (Uh, I guess it could also be we’re just not that popular.) Certainly the zeitgeist argues against going over-the-top with a lavish, expensive card. But here’s the great thing: With e-cards, you can still send out your holiday cards, without a lot of hassle, even if you haven’t given them much thought. And there are other options, too, like creating a quick holiday video to send to friends. I wrote a column last year about alternatives to holiday greetings. It puts the spotlight on Animoto, a really great tool for creating MTV-style videos without spending a whole lot of time on them.
