Christmas card demographics

Normally I get this post up the first or second week in January, if not earlier.  This year has been nuts, so it's the 2nd week in February before I'm getting around to writing it...  Ugh.

Anyway, here goes:

This year I sent 140 Christmas cards out, and we received 70.  I made a nifty little spreadsheet on Google Docs to keep track of them all.

Here's where they all went:

In the US
IL - 24
IA - 23
CO- 7
WI & FL - 6 each
AZ - 5
TX & OK - 4 each
IN, MO & VA - 3 each
NC, SC, CA & MS - 2 each
NE, TN, NV, WA, UT, NM, AR & MN - 1 each

Outside the US
Italy - 33 (mostly APO addresses though)
South Korea - 2
Australia - 1
Japan - 1
Germany - 1
Spain - 1
Switzerland - 1
Vatican City - 1
Belgium - 1
Sweden - 1

If you want to check out 2011's card demographics, they're here.

It'll be interesting to see how this changes next year since we're moving back to the States and quite a few of our friends from Italy will be moving before next Christmas also.  I'm already excited about Christmas next year.  9 more months and I can start working on my Christmas cards for this year!

LOL, you were much more ambitious than I this year. I didn't do any holiday cards for 2012. :)
