13 days of Christmas family traditions ~ Hosted By Rainbow's Daily Life

13 days of Christmas family traditions ~
Hosted By Rainbow's Daily Life

Day 3

Christmas letter

So one thing I adopted doing and made a tradition for myself was doing an annual Christmas letter.
It was a great way to let those in the family and those I love;
 Know up dates with the family.
I would enclose the letter in my Christmas cards,
Along with my business card.

I usually starting writing my Christmas letter in early November and have all my cards sent and off by the First week in December.

Sadly that isn't the case at all this year.
I haven't wrote a letter;
Done up Christmas cards .
Nor have I done my business Christmas cards either that I would place my business card with my annual;
Customer appreciation discount that starts on the 26th of December and runs until January 1st at midnight.
I always offer my customers, family, and friends 30% off their entire orders as a thank you for doing business with me.

I'm actually trying to figure out how I am going to accomplish my letter this year along with my annual sale for my customer's.
I'm sure I will come up with something.
I have even thought about doing a Christmas letter here on the blog.
Not sure..
Just thinking.

Below was a really cool idea that came across from a friend of mine that I went to school with when I was a child.
It is so neat and so cool I had to share it here on the Christmas traditions.
I will have to go purchase a new phone book for this but it is so cool.
Great way to have up dated and current mailing addresses.
Thank you Mary!
A new Christmas tradition for me. Bought a new phone book. Cut out return address labels from Christmas cards & tape them inside the phone. Will always have a current address. Have written the name's names in the phone book, cause they may have had another kid since the last card. It happened with a cousin this year.

Do you have any really neat ways to up date your address book or keep up with loved ones and friends?

Bethe...I think that is a wonderful way to update a Phone book. I usually just stuff them in the back of the book and I'm sure many fall out along the way!

It's such a whirlwind time of what you can and save what you can't for the New Year!
