I posted 12 days ago. It’s ironic. Just last night I sat down to write my Christmas letter and I was trying to fashion our letter in the form of a song to the tune of the 12 days of Christmas.
Yeah, it wasn’t working for me either.
I have issues with Christmas letters. I want to write them all the time. I always want to. I do I do. But, when it comes down to it, I bore my self with the letter.
I had high hopes this year. We took family pictures in September and I was going to have them made into some beautiful Christmas cards and send them to all our loved ones… and then, I posted all the family pictures on facebook and my blog and now nobody will even think they are that great because they’ve seen them all.
So, I decided to buy cards and just send a meaningful card. But, my husband needed some for his business, and I didn’t feel like going to the store to get more (you just don’t leave these things up to men to choose) so I gave him the ones I bought… and they are beautiful by the way.
Then, I decided to write a Christmas letter. Since I already had the perfect picture and the perfect card. How could I come up with the perfect letter? I want my readers to laugh, and smile, and enjoy the letter…. and it wasn’t happening for me. It was like a bad Donny and Marie episode.
So, now I’m stuck. How oh how do I let all my friends and family know that I love them and that I wish them a Merry Christmas?
I’m thinking about just telling them. Wouldn’t that just be something unique? A phone call or an email saying Merry Christmas I’m thinking of you.
