Christmas greetings say so much more

My favorite Christmas letter is from my cousin, Cathy, who never paints her life in rosy colors.

Perhaps because Christmas comes at the end of the year, I notice holiday greetings often include an annual recap, for which I’m very thankful since I’m generally bad at keeping tabs with distant family members and friends. 

I find correspondences that detail trips, purchases, and accomplishments a little intimidating, but, like any family, it balances out. I’m relieved to be somewhere in the middle. 

Many also use the holiday as an occasion to express their gratitude.
