    Most people just write "To X [default Christmas greeting] From X" and the complete lack of effort makes it even more pointless.

    I suppose its one of those things that is just 'expected' as a sign of goodwill. Like there's not much of a point attending a funeral because the person has died and they're never coming back but you make an appearance nonetheless to show that you care. Christmas cards are like a lesser version of that kind of thing, you do it to maintain relations with people.

    It wouldn't be a problem if no one did it but because everyone else is then you gotta do it too. Imagine turning up to a birthday party and you brought a present but you didn't bring a card, sure you showed up and got a gift but your card is missing from all the other cards.
