Ethics of sending holiday cards to Judge's chambers where you clerked?

Is there an ethics opinion on this? I would like to send one to my old chambers, but don't anything to come across as trying to influence anyone. Obviously I can't practice before my old judge for some time, but there's a chance my firm will.

A holiday card is fine.

Just don't enclose large amounts of cash. :D

We got holiday cards from previous clerks. Seems fine to me. No cash or gift cards or anything like that, though.
