1. If you are uncertain if the recipient celebrates Christmas, Hanukkah, or another religious faith or tradition then send a neutral card that says “Happy Holidays”, “Season’s Greetings”, “Warm Wishes For A Happy Holiday Season”, or “Peace on Earth”.
2. Write a short note inside the card. Don’t just sign you name, besides, the whole point of sending a holiday card is to get personal.
3. Include a family photo and write a caption on the back. Be sure to include kids names/ages and where/when the photo was taken.
4. Remember to include a return address on the envelope.
5. Send a card to everyone who sends you one.
6. Be sure to mail your holiday cards out so they arrive prior to the actual day.
7. Hand addressing the envelope is more personal than a label.
8. Email greetings are not a substitute for an actual holiday card.
9. If you write a holiday newsletter make sure you don’t over-do it. Only include the highlights from the past year and be sure to keep it on one page.
