Good Friday Morning! Well, I have done it! The first ever Jeute Family Christmas Letter. Which really goes to show what a rebel I am because this has been my family's tradition for most of my life. My parents have sent one out for as long as I can remember; with each of us girls (3 of us) having had our own paragraph to detail the events of the last year.
Well, thanks for the idea Mom and Dad! As you all know the last couple of years has been filled with many ups and downs, and for some reason it seems that the Holidays have always brought about the downside of the money, time or health "case" (or maybe that is just an excuse) and one of the places I have skimped is with Christmas cards and postage. But I have come to realize that often times, that simple Christmas card is the only time you might hear from that dear friend, and that holiday cards are truly a meaningful way of staying in touch with the ones you love.
So, what is your holiday tradition? Do you send photo cards or do the letter? Is it a personalized card to each person? Up until this year (okay like I said, I skipped a couple years), I wrote out a card to each person and put a pic in each one. Times are tough, and people know that; I think the letter, that has four family photos on it, will be great. In holding with family tradition; I will have each family member sign it in a different color ink like we used to do when I was a kid! Ho, Ho, Ho!
