But there does seem to be a generational shift, at least in US culture. I've always received a hand written card/thank you note from my Ts when I'v given a gift. But my Ts were always older than me, of generations that were brought up to do so. I was brought up the same way: from childhood, thank-you notes were written a couple of days after Christmas to demonstrate appreciation to those who cared to send a gift. It was part of the rhythm of the holidays. Judging from what I hear from a lot of people, it's much less common now. I think it's sad, and it would bother me.

My T is 8 years older than I am. Big Cool is chalking it up to T just not feeling well in her recovery from cancer surgery. But you can bet it will be on the list of things I will talk to her about, the next time I see her.
