It’s the season . . .

What do I like to do leading up to the holidays? I watch Hallmark Christmas movies, drink hot chocolate and write Christmas cards! (And eat way too many gingerbread cookies!)

I don’t know that many people still send written wishes, but I do. To me there’s something very special about sending personal handwritten notes. It’s a great way to show friends and family you’re thinking about them, especially if you can’t be with them personally.

If handwriting isn’t your thing, there are all kinds of online sites ready to create digital greetings and videos for you.

Add a smile … May your days be merry and bright!

The holiday greeting tradition started with writing lengthy letters before it moved to cards. Some people still write annual letters today to share updates on everything from family vacations to the progress their kids are making in school. Unfortunately, my life isn’t interesting enough to fill an entire letter. A few expressions of joy and hope from the heart will have to do!

The first Christmas cards date back to the 1800s when Sir Henry Cole commissioned the first-ever design. Read about it here.

If you want to add a smile to someone’s face this holiday season, try sending a greeting card. It’s sure to do the trick!

Happy holidays everyone!
