Today’s Resolution: Celebrate Christmas in July

Each year as the winter holidays roll around, I find myself scurrying to get holiday greetings out to family and friends. It even seems more and more acceptable to get them out as late as January after the major holidays have passed. This year, why not resolve to get the correspondence out 5 months ahead of time when the pace is slower?

Personalize a letter and attach to an email for friends and family. They will not be expecting it, and they will appreciate a detailed update on what you have been doing. If you want to splurge a little, buy holiday cards with festive stamps and use snail mail to spread the holiday cheer. You might even get some special responses!
