Christmas Cards: who to send to, etiquette questions

So I was wondering, who all should get Christmas cards outside of family/close friends? Landlord, financial planner, guitar teacher I was figuring all get one, as they're important/interact with them regularly. Should my doctor as well? I also haven't talked to a professor of mine I really enjoyed in a few years,but thought about sending him one, is that OK or too weird?

One thing I was hung up on is how to address this one card. I have a friend who lives with her sister and her sister's husband. I am friends with both the sisters more than the husband as I've known them longer. I addressed it Mr. Husband AAA, Mrs. Sister1 AAA, and Miss Sister2 ZZZ. However, I've known sister2 longer and I'm better friends with her. I mean in the end it doesn't matter and I doubt anyone anymore will recognize that but still... just wanted to make sure it wasn't a huge faux pas.

Any other tips?

My plan for Christmas cards is just to wait until I get married and let my wife handle it. Women love shit like that.

Yeah. about that. Any cards that I don't send out myself, don't get sent out.

HAH! It is actually kind of fun. Then again, I still enjoy sending letters and whatnot.

Get blank cards then draw Xmas art on them with crayons.

Please don't ruin my idyllic perception of matrimony.

Send two cards.

One for the sister and husband and another for your friend.

I send them to family and close friends. I do not send them to business connections.

I post them on Christmas Eve ... to arrive during the Twelve Days of Christmas.
