Dp and I just moved into our house. Previous tenants were absolute nightmares, police called out on regular basis, family effing and blinding at each other out windows etc.
I thought it would be polite to send Christmas cards out to the neighbours as I don't know them and want to look polite and friendly - but we have moved not far from dp's parents so dp knows the majority of the neighbours.
Aibu to send them anyway? Or would it just look odd. As I don't know anyone's names and was going to just put 'merry Christmas!' On the envelopes 😂
I just don't want to look like I'm being overly familiar with some of the ones my dp knows but I wouldn't know at all!
The previous tenants were horrible and I just don't want to be tarred with the same brush (and also in our last home none of the neighbours would speak to us as they didn't like the couple we were renting from 😒). Also the lady next door is quite old and I don't want her thinking she's going to have a repeat of the last lot.
Yes do send. It is often the only time neighbours communicate. Sad i know. Receiving such a card reassures others that you are all like minded and spreads a little love, peace and security. Lord knows we need more of that.
We are planning on doing exactly this! Moved in mid year, and my immediate neighbours are lovely, and I also know one from across the road's name, but that is all. It's very much a village mentality around here though, everyone knows everyone.
