    Default Where to get Xmas card in Spanish (in my white bread town)? Help?

    911!

    I am giving my Spanish-speaking barn buddy a jacket for Christmas but the cold snap here in Oregon is NOw, so I need a card for him NOW.

    Can't find a Spanish-language christmas card anywhere in my little town.

    I have tried:
    The one, very small Mexican grocery
    Rite aid
    Local book stores and import shop

    Where else should I look?

    Many thanks.

    PS. I know, I could make one….. theoretically.

    My local Target (when I lived in IL) had a section of Spanish greeting cards in their greeting card area.

    Just give him an English card and write "Feliz Navidad!" before signing your name. I'm sure he'll get it.

    If you have a dollar store, you might also try there, as well as your regular grocery stores. You never know what you might find.

    "White Bread Town"....excuse me? You want a card for your Burrito friends? Nothing like some racism for the holidays.

    I agree. I live in the Willamette Valley with plenty of agriculture and a large spanish-speaking population of undocumented- and low-wage workers that help get the farming done here.

    Nope, can't buy stuff that caters to them like a Spanish-language Christmas card.

    But thanks for your input.

    I'm happy to purchase one and send it to you, there are no shortage of cards around here. I wouldn't take that long to get there!

    Download a card from the web and print it on some nice cardstock.
