Ask a Question

How long do you keep birthdays cards etc on display. Itโ€™s a week in our home then I keep the special ones ( donโ€™t know why) and recycle the others.

For most occasions we tend to keep the cards on display for a week or two, and then they go into the recycling. I always wonder how long people cards up for too lol x

Normally a week, but I've still got my Mothers Day card up as it only arrived on Thursday having taken 8 days to travel 60 mile.

Normally a week but must admit I have kept my Mothers Day cards up this year, silly I know, but isolated from sons and grandkids it is nice to see them when I look up.

I have had my motherโ€™s day card up for over a year as it has a scan picture of my grandson who unfortunately died before birth, so can not get rid of this card.

A week, in theory. But tend to keep them up longer just because I forget to take them down!

Birthday cards etc a few days typically, a week tops if a special birthday. I get sick of them falling all the time. Christmas cards I dont even tend to put up, we dont get many of those now tho because most our family friends know I detest them.

I keep them all, and usually they go into a box where I keep memorabilia. I like to look back at them now and again

They tend to stay up for a week. Christmas ones might be slightly longer depending when we get them. I keep the special ones and put them in my sons memory box for when he is older.

I have two cards since Christmas... Kinda new in the country and I thought you were meant to keep them in a box or whatever after not making sense leaving them up there on display.

Birthday cards are kept up for about a week, still have my Mothers day 2 cards up as obviously didn't get to see my handsome son and gorgeous 6 month old granddaughter ๐Ÿ˜˜. Also a bit sentimental I know but I always keep my cards that are special to me and have done for years.

I keep them up just long enough to see if I have a good hand but awful at playing poker otherwise.
