The Conversation: 5 Christmas Letter Tips

Do you send out Christmas letters? Marylandwriter.net has given some good advice for writing the perfect Christmas letter and I thought it worthy of passing along. You can read the post in its entirety here.

Each of these tips is elaborated on in the original post but in summary:

Tip 1: Keep news on family members to one paragraph.
Tip 2: Resist all temptation to brag or appear like you're bragging.
Tip 3: Pick a few highlights of the year - then elaborate on how you feel or felt about those events.
Tip 4: Be "you" focused instead of "me" focused.
Tip 5: Mention your sincerest Christmas wish in the end.

Of course there are no fixed rules on writing a Christmas or any other sort of letter but a few guiding principals can be very helpful.

    1. Good call. If in doubt, don't send the joke. Humor is often misunderstood at the other end!
