I love writing thank you notes. Making the time to reflect on each gift, the thoughtfulness of the giver and the warmth of the occasion is an important part of my holiday tradition. Everything about it matters – choosing the artful paper, the pen, and the actual writing of my appreciation. I never imagined how much I would eventually enjoy it when, as a child, it was a mandatory task that my mother required. While I ponder what the coming New Year might have in store, thank you notes are a welcome ritual for bringing the season to a close.
