The holidays are upon us: Tips for writing a letter to friends and family

It’s that time of year. Time to dress up the dog in a Christmas sweater, sprinkle tinsel on a tree, and write the beloved holiday letter. Just in case you’re at a loss for what to write about, here are a few prompts:

Milestones — Note anything you’ve knocked off your bucket list (if you don’t have a bucket list, start one!). In her letter last year, one friend reported her twins had graduated from college.

Life changes — How have you changed in the past year and how did the changes come about?

Plans for the future — What are your hopes and plans for the future? Give your readers a sneak peek of life to come.
