Charity Christmas Cards - Real Conscience vs Trend

* I'm putting some Christmas cards up on the wall and i notice that about 80% of them are supporting various charities

(I hasten to add that this can only be a good thing)

this is good, but one has to question the motivation for such a radical switch in popularity of charity cards, for whilst i'd like to believe that each person who sent one of these is fully aware of what theyre contributing to and how they can help by making a positive decision to spend a bit more on a causeworthy card rather than a sickly/glossy/thin/shitty Clintons Cards card, i can't help but feel lots of it is done because it's trendy or "the done thing"

i'd much prefer a phone call from said card giver to say that instead of giving me a card, they were wishing me merry christmas and putting a pound in a charity box. much better

The problem is, I have a strong attachment to humour in Christmas cards, and for some reason there seems to be a communal agreement among charities to not even attempt it in their's.
