Yes, Christmas cards are allowed. If the normal mailing rules say "white envelopes only" then make sure it has a white envelope (I don't think Washington requires that, but some other states do).

The biggies are no metal, no batteries (like the musical cards), no glitter. There are still some really nifty cards you can buy if you want something with a little more pizazz. LovePop cards makes some great pop up cards that make it through the mail room. Just don't get ones that have anything too busy inside them (I once sent a rose that opened into a giant bloom - that was sent back because they said they'd have to destroy the card to search it properly. But it was the first one I'd ever had sent back - all other lovepop cards have made it through).

I've even sent cards purchased in stores that had manual movement in them (pull the tab to make santa move) and those have gone through. The glitter seems to be the big thing and that can be hit or miss depending on who's in the mail room that day.
