It's two days before Christmas, and you haven't sent out any holiday cards yet. Feeling a little anti-establishment this holiday season? Or...did you just procrastinate a bit too long? Unless you're OK with sending out "Happy New Year" cards, it's not too late to consider a digital alternative to printed holiday cheer. 
Send a video message
The website sharenik.com lets you send personalized e-cards with video messages embedded right into the card. If you have a Skype account, you can create a group video greeting, either through the video calling service or Facebook.
Send an e-card
...and donate what you would have spent on paper and postage to charity. Hallmark lets you subscribe to unlimited e-cards throughout the year for $12 — a good deal if you plan on continuing the trend of saving postage and paper. 
Make a slideshow
Gather photos from throughout the year, put them in a slideshow, and set it to the musical selection of your choice. Services like Animoto and Smilebox are great, free programs to try if you don't already have your own software. 
Send cards from your phone
If you just can't seem to stomach the idea of sending no printed greetings this holiday season, then why not make it a little easier for yourself? Postagram, an app available for iPhone and Android, lets you create postcards complete with personalized messages and your choice of a photo from your Facebook albums or your Instagram account. 
Do you have other alternatives to share? Or do you think people should send printed holiday greetings no matter how late it is in the season?
